Financial Services Compensation Scheme

Wesleyan Bank Limited is covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a bank is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors - including most individuals and small businesses - are covered by the scheme.

In respect of deposits, an eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to £85,000.

For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of £170,000). The £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositor's accounts with the bank, including their share of any joint account, and not to each separate account.

Wesleyan Bank Limited is a subsidiary of Hampshire Trust Bank Plc and as each entity has its own banking licence, in respect of eligible deposits.  This means that deposits with Wesleyan Bank remain protected up to £85,000 per eligible depositor and deposits with Hampshire Trust Bank are separately protected up to £85,000 per eligible depositor.For further information about the compensation provided by the FSCS (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please call us on 0800 358 1122, refer to the FSCS website or call the FSCS on 0800 678 1100. Please note only compensation related queries should be directed to the FSCS.

How we use your information

The security of your personal data is very important to us and we will never sell your data to other companies.

You can read more about how we protect your information and your rights by reading our privacy notice which is available upon request or via our website.

Responsible lending

Personal Loans are provided by Wesleyan Bank Limited and are regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974. Written quotations are available on request from 80 Fenchurch Street, London EC3M 4BY. Credit facilities are subject to status and not available to anyone under 18 years of age. Wesleyan Bank reserves the right to decline any application.

Wesleyan Bank is a responsible lender. We will check and appraise the financial circumstances of your application carefully and make any credit reference, fraud or other enquiries we consider appropriate.

If you submit an application form you will be consenting to these responsible lending practices. We may need to talk to you about your requirements in more detail. It is important that you do not take on more borrowing than you can afford. If you apply for a loan with us you will be agreeing to these responsible lending practices.

We may use credit reference and fraud prevention agencies to help us make decisions. What we do and how we, credit reference and fraud prevention agencies will use your information is detailed in our Privacy Notice. Alternatively, you may contact us on 0800 358 1122, or write to us at: Wesleyan Bank Limited, 80 Fenchurch Street, London EC3M 4BY.

When you apply to us for a credit-based product, the details you provide, the information we already have and information from credit reference agencies are used to assess credit risk using a technique called 'credit scoring'. Various factors in all these details help us to assess the risk. A score is given to each factor and a total credit score obtained. If your score is above a confidential pre-set pass score, the application is likely to succeed.

Credit reference and fraud prevention agencies will maintain a record of our search including whether you have given us false or inaccurate information or we suspect fraud. These enquiries depend on our submitting loan account information on a regular basis to licensed credit reference and fraud prevention agencies to be shared with other lenders and insurers in assessing applications for credit and all types of insurance from you and other members of your household and to prevent fraud and money laundering.

A link between joint applicants and/or any individual identified as your financial partner will be created at credit reference agencies, which will link your financial records. You and anyone else with whom you have a financial link understand that each other's information will be taken into account in all future applications by either or both of you. This linking will continue until one of you successfully files a disassociation at the credit reference agencies.

You have a right of access to your information held by credit reference agencies on payment of a fee. We mainly use Experian Limited. The agency’s address is: Experian Limited, Consumer Help Service, PO Box 8000, Nottingham NG1 5GX, or visit their website.

If you have been refused credit you can get advice from your local Trading Standards Department, Citizens Advice Bureau or Consumer Advice Centre. The Information Commissioner’s Office also produces a useful leaflet entitled ‘Credit Explained', you can obtain a free copy on the Commissioner's website or by telephoning 01625 545745.
