Metro Bank will provide a new cash savings range to SJP clients, including the SJP instant access savings account, the SJP fixed terms savings account, the SJP cash Isa and the SJP trust account.

Partners and SJP clients will also have access to a specialist Metro Bank City branch. Clients will be able to see their banking information as part of their wealth management reports.

Metro Bank chief commercial officer Paul Riseborough says: “We’re delighted to be extending our partnership with SJP, by supporting their clients to manage their cash savings in a more convenient and straightforward way.

“Our ongoing relationship with SJP really demonstrates how new challenger brands can complement established players, in order to enhance customers’ experiences.”

SJP joint chief operating officer Iain Rayner says: “At SJP we recognise the importance of banking to our clients and are committed to developing a range of banking services to provide holistic wealth management.  We see Metro Bank to be an innovative banking partner.”

The move comes after SJP partnered with Metro Bank on a family mortgage range earlier this year.
