About Barclays

Barclays bank is an established financial institute with 200 years of practice and experience in serving people.

The bank traces its ancestry roots back to two goldsmiths doing business in Lombard Street, London in 1960.

We endured the test of time

Built over two centuries ago, Barclays has endured the test of time against a backdrop of multiple financial crises, international and industrial conflicts as well as the revolution of technology. Our longevity is an extraordinary achievement and we strive to uphold this legacy. We move, lend, invest and protect the money of our customers worldwide. We specialise in personal loans and business loans, but we have many other loan options to choose from.

When you grow we grow

We strive to create opportunities to grow, as such, we are opportunity makers working together to help people grow their customers, clients, colleagues and society. By creating opportunities for others to grow, we recognise that Barclays grows too. We are different from most other lenders as we give you a personalized price quote up front. You get to see the actual rate, and the quote won't affect your credit score.

Barclays Services

We offer you money straight away because we understand life’s unexpected emergencies.

Simply apply online and submit, once approved you will receive your payday loan straightaway. We will notify you as soon as your loan has gone through the final approval process. Subsequently, the money will be transferred to your bank account straight away.

Our price guarantees

In the event you find a loan with a lower APR within 30 days of signing a Barclays loan agreement, we will match it, provided it’s like-for-like. As such, your monthly repayments will be recalculated to match the lower interest rate. Our fixed monthly repayments assist you in budgeting better.

Our top-up option

We also offer you a top-up option for those who already have a Barclays loan and need more funds. Simply apply online or speak to our helpful consultants. If you need to take out a second loan, this option is viable for you on request. In addition, you get to choose your repayment plan depending on the loan amount.
