UK Finance helps deliver on industry commitment to protect access to cash

UK Finance has played a leading role in the launch of Cash Access UK Ltd, a non-profit company which will help to protect cash access in UK communities. It is made up of nine of the UK’s largest high street banking providers.

The incorporation of the company, which has been supported by UK Finance from the beginning, is a major milestone in delivering the industry’s commitment to ensure that customers will continue to be able to readily access cash on the High Street. It follows extensive industry collaboration over eighteen months, led by UK Finance to align with forthcoming legislation and regulation by the Financial Conduct Authority.  

David Postings, Chief Executive of UK Finance, said:

While many people are now opting to manage their money digitally, we want to ensure that people can continue to access cash and do their banking face to face too. The creation of Cash Access UK Ltd is an important step towards a network of banking hubs across the country. So far 29 hubs have been announced and the industry is fully behind getting these up and running as quickly as possible.
