Drummonds is one of Britain’s oldest private banks, providing personal, private and business banking services to clients in the UK. As well as offering the traditional private banking services, today Drummonds is also one of only a handful of banks chosen by Camelot to provide a specialist banking service for UK lottery winners.
Its abiding principle, devised in 1792, ‘to make the welfare of the customer the first object’, is as relevant today as it was when Andrew Drummond began offering banking services in 1717.
Over the years, Drummonds has looked after the private banking affairs of some of the most illustrious names in British history, from prime minister Benjamin Disraeli and engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel to King George III. Its diverse clientele has included writers, artists, architects, furniture makers, engineers, scientists, aristocrats, royalty, bishops and statesmen. Josiah Wedgwood, the celebrated potter, was one the bank’s clients.
These days, Drummonds is known for providing a discreet and professional banking service to its customers, from its beautiful branch situated near Admiralty Arch, close to the entrance to The Mall. Drummonds enjoys a loyal customer base; many customers banking with the bank throughout their lives, as their parents and grandparents did before them.
