Skipton delivered a profit before tax of £19.9m and deposit growth of £293m.

The mortgage book performed very well, with only six cases in any form of arrears at the end of December 2020, representing less than 1 in 1,000 mortgages. Skipton’s mortgage team helped 870 new mortgage customers achieve their home owning aspirations during 2020 and saw mortgage balances increase by £161m across Guernsey, Jersey and the UK.
