ABOUT US

ABOUT US

Founded in 1959, Leumi UK is a British bank and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Leumi Group, Israel’s largest banking corporation.

 

This means we have the flexibility to offer our customers tailor-made banking services, as well as the backing of a major financial institution.


After all, the Leumi story began right here in London.

 

Starting out in 1902 as the Anglo Palestine Company, Leumi Group has been promoting economic development for more than a century by investing in its clients’ businesses.

 

Here at Leumi UK, we pride ourselves on our customer-focused ‘relationship banking’, whereby we make it our mission to build trusting relationships with our clients and get to know their businesses inside out.

 

This enables us to work in partnership with our customers and provide a bespoke service to specifically address their business banking needs, including both deposit and foreign exchange requirements.

 

We are based in Central London and, through our asset-backed lending unit Leumi ABL, have offices in Brighton, Reading, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds.

Gil Karni, Chief Executive Officer: Gil took the reins in London in 2018, having served as CEO of two subsidiaries in the Leumi Group, as well as holding various other key roles in the Group across Eastern and Western Europe.

 

“As a specialist bank, it is our extensive knowledge of your sector that sets us apart, allowing us to pinpoint your challenges and maximise your opportunities.

 

However, expertise is only part of the story. We see our commitment to long-term client relationships as critical to your business.”
