NatWest are proud partners of FBUK, as we know Family businesses are a cornerstone of the UK business community, responsible for a significant proportion of private sector employment.

86% of private sector businesses are family businesses, forming a large portion of NatWest’s customers. Family businesses also employ 40% of all employees in the UK economy, contributing to 29% of the UKs Gross Domestic Product. *Source measured by MarketVueBusiness Banking from Savanta Q4 2022.
