Important information about branches

Like many banks in the UK, Al Rayan Bank is finding that more and more customers are choosing to access their banking services via their computer or mobile phone, rather than their local branch. As customer demand for branch services reduces, this means that we are having to take some difficult decisions regarding where we continue to operate retail branches.  

The following branches will be permanently closing on Wednesday 11 August 2021.  

  • Whitechapel branch, 97-99 Whitechapel Road, London, E1 1DT
  • Small Heath branch, 394 Coventry Rd, Small Heath, Birmingham B10 0UF 

Customers' current banking arrangements, including account numbers, sort codes and any standing orders or Direct Debits they have set up will remain the same, and if we make any further changes which affect products, either before the branch permanently closes or afterwards, we will write to customers affected separately. 

If you are affected by this closure, we want to reassure you that we have made alternatives available to you.
