NOTES TO EDITORS

UK Asset Resolution Limited (UKAR)

UKAR was established on 1 October 2010 to facilitate the orderly management of the closed mortgage books of both Bradford & Bingley (B&B) and Northern Rock Asset Management (NRAM) to maximise value for taxpayers. The Executive team of UKAR manages both organisations focusing on this common objective, while ensuring that both companies continue to treat customers fairly, deliver consistently high levels of service and support those customers facing financial difficulty.

The administration of the Help to Buy: mortgage guarantee scheme by UKAR will have no impact on the financial position of B&B and NRAM.
