Launching in 2014, Tandem was one of the UK's original digital challenger banks, providing access to simple, honest, and fair mortgage and savings products.

In 2018 Tandem bought Harrods Bank, followed by the green home improvement loan specialists Allium Lending Group, in 2020.

Oplo launched in 2009 to provide fairer access to financial products for all the hardworking Britons who have been left behind by traditional high street banks and other lenders.

Since then, Oplo has approved £915 million of responsible lending to customers across the UK.

In 2022 Oplo merged with Tandem Bank, inspired by a shared mission to create a greener, digital bank for all.

Our Team

The Tandem Senior Management Team share many years’ experience in the financial services sector – their real-life lending, credit risk, and technology expertise is crucial in our aim to create the UK’s first greener digital bank.
