City of London Group

City of London Group plc (COLG) is listed as a trading company on AIM (TIDM: CIN) and is the parent company of a group which focusses on serving two key segments, the UK SME market and home reversion. While grounded with traditional values, through the strength and depth of expertise in its expanding team, it is now primed for future growth through its two-pronged strategy. The Group’s expertise covers finance and services for the SME sector and home reversion. COLG ensures its services are always delivered with a personal touch, so clients know that they are more than a customer and have a partner that will work with them as they look towards the future.

In 2017 Recognise’s founding directors set about the creation of a new bank, which would feel and act differently – focussing on under-served UK SME’s, delivering best in class service through genuine relationship management, flexibility and speed of execution. Jason Oakley (CEO) and Bryce Glover (Deputy CEO) have a collective 70 years experience in senior roles within established UK banks serving the SME market and  share a vision of building a bank they could be proud of.

Recognise is a wholly owned subsidiary of City of London Group plc (“COLG”), and has a clear strategy to create a new UK bank that would specifically serve the needs of SMEs and would provide a home for personal and business savings. Using the best available technology, Recognise balances this with an absolute focus on personal relationships, developing a regional presence in the UK and delivering superior service to busy entrepreneurs and business owners.

The founding directors have hand-picked an experienced team who have the knowledge and enthusiasm to place Recognise on the map and to support regional communities across the UK starting with dedicated teams in London, the Midlands, Manchester & Leeds.

To unlock the capital tied up within properties, many believe they must move or downsize. Milton Homes provides home reversion plans based on either traditional or innovative models, providing people with renewed financial freedom whilst remaining in the homes they love. The business arranges, administers and provides home reversion plans.
