We issued our very first credit card way back in 1996, and have since grown to become one of the UK's top ten card providers.
From day one, our business has been about helping people succeed with credit. From innovative tools like our QuickCheck eligibility checker, to the way we're driving positive change across the finance industry. It's no wonder we're the only card provider with a 4-star rated credit card from Fairbanking.
From knowing if you'll be accepted before applying to making payments on your mobile, we make managing your money effortless.
We talk straight without confusing jargon. Keeping it clear and simple, so you know exactly what to expect from us.
It's our business to help people succeed with credit. We do this by putting customers at the heart of everything we do.

At Capital One UK we're proudly committed to creating an inclusive workplace, where the diversity of ideas and people are valued.
We’re always pushing for greater gender diversity at every level of the business. It’s at the core of what we do, which is why we signed the HM Treasury Women in Finance Charter.
The Charter is designed to improve gender diversity in businesses across the financial sector. By signing it we commit to:
- Setting targets to improve gender diversity across our senior management team
- Getting a 50:50 gender balance (within a 10% tolerance) in our senior management team by December 2021
- Training all of our senior managers in inclusive leadership
- Boosting awareness of gender diversity across the company
- Continually reviewing our employment and development processes to make sure we’re encouraging all types of diversity and fostering a culture of inclusion
As of March 2019, we have a 38:62 (female:male) gender balance in our senior management team, putting female representation in this group at 38%. Despite this being below our target range at the time of our annual reporting in March, our latest figure is in line with our Charter target and we believe we are on track to continue to meet our target by our deadline of 31st December 2021.
In 2019, we have continued to invest in a programme of activities to raise awareness of inclusive behaviours, including an all-associate offsite where associates heard from external expert speakers on topics of inclusion. In addition, all associates with people leadership responsibilities have a specific performance objective related to inclusion.
We are investing in improving the gender diversity of our talent pipeline, specifically for roles where women have historically been underrepresented, in areas such as Analytics and Technology and have developed our data collection and insight gathering to better identify areas for improvement.
We continue to monitor progress against our commitments as part of the Women in Finance Charter, and report to our Board of Directors on a quarterly basis.
