What we're all about

Without you, we’re nothing. That’s why we’re building Atom bank around you. Founded in 2014, and the UK’s first bank built exclusively for mobile, we’re a passionate bunch based in the north east of England.

For our customers

We've built a bank you'll want to be a part of. It puts your needs first and keeps things super-simple and secure.

For the greater good

We're nothing without the community we call home, so we're determined to give back through our partnerships with the Prince's Trust and local organisations.

For a better way

We're using technology to create real value for customers and investors. A bank with automation and data at its heart.

See for yourself

More of a visual person? Here's a quick vid that encapsulates who we are and what we're about.

It's all about you


While we’re always pushing the boundaries of banking tech, it’s all for nothing if we’re not meeting your needs. It’s your bank and everything’s built around you - you can call your account anything you want, and we even create a unique logo (‘marque’) for each of our customers.

In Atom we trust


We're proudly based in the north east of England, an area with one of the highest level of youth unemployment in the UK. Partnering with The Prince's Trust, we provide mentoring and workshops to young people, so they feel better prepared to find work.



Incubating local talent


Our community is important to us and new technology is our lifeblood. That's why we came up with Atom Incubator. Based in our Durham HQ, Atom Incubator offers professional advice, space and access to a community of technology startups and entrepreneurs.
