Burnley Businessman Behind Bank Of Dave Lodges Bid For Local Branch Of Rbs And Vows To Keep Staff On

Recommended Posts


Dave Fishwick, the Burnley businessman who shot to fame with Bank to Dave and a subsequent television series, has lodged a bid to take over the Royal Bank of Scotland branch in his hometown after the banking giant announced plans to close it.

The bid, which he exclusively revealed to This is Money, has been received by RBS and Mr Fishwick is awaiting a response.

It comes as Bank of Dave - otherwise known as Burnley Savings and Loans - continues to grow at a rapid pace. It now has more than a thousand accounts and hundreds of thousands of pounds flowing through it each month.

Hope he gets it, comes across as genuine and has certainly put his money where his mouth is.

Banks should hang their heads in shame. Dave couldn't get a banking licence so had a up hill fight. yet he still pays 5% and is looking at expanding.
