Kinder banking. It's in our nature.

At The Cumberland, we do what comes naturally. Because what comes naturally is best for our world.

We treat people with warmth and respect their dreams and ambitions. Whether you’re applying for a mortgage, starting a business or saving for retirement, we're here to provide support.

We lend a helping hand in our communities. We ensure everyone feels included, look out for the most vulnerable and offer practical solutions.

We know that caring about people means caring for nature - from the countryside and wildlife to everything beyond.

We look to the environment when it comes to making decisions. Because a sustainable future is the best foundation to build.
