The bank is Shariah-compliant, meaning does not invest in industries or activities related to alcohol, tobacco, pork and non-halal meat production, gambling, adult entertainment, and arms.
Its principles set out to promote trade and enterprise to generate wealth for the benefit of the community.
Jane Benjamin, director of mortgages at Sesame and PMS, (pictured) said: “With increasing demand for Shariah-compliant products in the UK, we are very pleased to add Gatehouse Bank to our panels.
“Sesame Bankhall Group undertakes a rigorous process before any new bank or building society is added to our PMS and Sesame panels. We adopt the same robust process for all our partners and we work hard to ensure that our panels provide as much choice as possible.
“With a limited number of Shariah-compliant banks operating in the UK market we are very pleased to now be working with Gatehouse, which is helping us to offer our members and their customers greater choice and diversity.”
Roger Evans, director of home finance distribution at Gatehouse Bank, added: “As we continue to extend our reach into the intermediary market, we are delighted to be working with Sesame Bankhall Group.”
