Metro Bank, the first new high street player to enter the UK market for 100 years, will open its doors to customers in six weeks.
Time will tell. Metro Bank would make an outstanding contribution to the UK economy if it overturned hundreds of years of banking tradition and actually helped customers through financial difficulties when they need help - and not pester them with services
and products they don't need the rest of the time. It kind of works the opposite way around at the moment - when you need money they won't lend it to you, and when you have money they won't leave you alone. Good luck Metro Bank - prove yourself to be different.
