Corporate Banking Solutions for Estates Sector


Barclays understands the specific needs of landed estates and launched our dedicated team to meet these requirements. We offer a wide range of services to many of the UK’s large-scale landowners.

You can rely on Barclays for in-depth understanding of your industry and the knowledge needed to offer appropriate products.

As one of our Estates clients, you can also take advantage of:

  • our complete discretion. We understand that for many of our clients, their estate is not only a business but also their home, a safe haven for them and their loved ones. Often, the estate has been in the family for many years and is of great personal value
  • our ability to create a bespoke package for each client: 'Not only were the bank in a position to offer finance at a competitive rate, but the individuals within the bank had a knowledge and understanding of our sector. Trust is the bedrock of a relationship and I have every confidence in Barclays.’ Farley Farms and Estate1
