About Us

  • Alpha Bank London Limited is a UK registered financial institution authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA). The PRA is part of the Bank of England, the central bank for the United Kingdom. Alpha Bank London Limited is registered under number 135327 in the UK Financial Services register. This means that the Greek Government has no regulatory influence over Alpha Bank London Limited
  • We are covered by the UK’s Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if the Bank is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors, including most individuals and companies, are covered by the scheme. Whilst the bank’s registered name is “Alpha Bank London Limited”, we also trade under the name “Alpha Private Bank”; this makes no difference to any potential claims you may have.
  • Alpha Bank London Limited maintains a strong balance sheet with capital and liquidity both comfortably in excess of our minimum regulatory requirements. Our exposure to Greece is negligible, having minimal impact on our capital and liquidity ratios, thus ensuring that we are very well insulated from the crisis in Greece. 
  • We have no funding requirement from either the wholesale market or from our parent company, Alpha Bank AE.
  • We operate on a stand-alone basis with independent systems and infrastructure.
