Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) digital banking partner

We back small but mighty businesses 

We’re for the crafters, the grafters, and the self starters. The bank for sole traders and those just starting up. And for small businesses with growth on their minds and less time than they’d like. 

We’ve walked that route and know it’s as tiring as it is exciting. Just because you’re going it alone doesn’t mean you have to do it on your own.  

That’s where we step in – smart technology, straightforward human service and bank accounts that meet real-life needs. 

Let’s get your business off to a flying start.

The Zempler Bank story so far

It started with a personal mission to make banking simpler for people being let down by the UK’s banking system 

When our CEO and founder Rich Wagner landed in the UK, no high street bank would let him open an account. He’d not been in the country long enough, apparently. Something had to change. Zempler grew with a vision that banking shouldn’t get in the way of life, it should make it simpler. We follow that same vision just as doggedly today as Rich did 20 years ago. 

We’ve made some great progress over the years, and turned our focus to underserved small businesses and start ups

We’re proud of our story. We introduced the UK’s first prepaid debit card and the first online business account. And our innovative Creditbuilder products have helped thousands of people and businesses build a credit history and boost their credit rating. 

We know the job isn’t finished yet, and we have big plans for the future  

In 2021, we were authorised as a bank. This has opened exciting new possibilities for us to help even more people. We’ve always invested in the things that matter. We don’t do gimmicks - we run Zempler economically sustainably and responsibly. We’re here to do banking right and support our customers for the long haul.
