Metro looking to offload loan book

1 Like

I actually think that is a logical step, metro’s appeal is in its high street branches, being open 7 days a week so people can bank with real people more often, metro branches are well used in towns they have one compared to other banks. By not lending and concentrating on its high street branches thus appealing to business it has something to offer without the financial and regulatory requirements in mortgage lending.

It’s very possible and much easier to offer mortgages without being the provider.
