Whether you're a first-time buyer, looking to switch from your current lender, need to remortgage or thinking of investment, you can choose the features and repayment options that best fit your requirements. We offer a complete range of mortgages to help Gibraltar residents buy property on the Rock – or in the UK. Depending on your circumstances and the particular mortgage, you may be able to borrow up to 85% of the property's purchase value or purchase price, in which case you would need a deposit of 15%.

We also have a choice of debit cards that make it easier to get hold of your money and make purchases in store, online and by phone.
Different people save for different reasons, so we offer a wide range of savings options. Whether you're looking to save for a specific purpose over the short- to medium-term, want a flexible savings solution or prefer to deposit your money for a longer period, you can choose the type of account that best fits your circumstances and goals.
However straightforward or complex your investment needs, we have a range of options appropriate for Gibraltar residents that could help you reach your goals. You can choose the level or risk and return that best fits your investment style and objectives, from actively managed funds to more passive investments that are linked to the performance of a specified asset or index. You should bear in mind that the value of investments can fall as well as rise.
