Tailored Business Loans (or TBLs) are products which have been sold by some banks as an alternative to separate business loans and hedging product agreements. The banks which mainly marketed and sold TBLs to customers are Lloyds Bank, Yorkshire Bank and Clydesdale Bank.
TBLs are a form of product which masquerades as a standard fixed rate loan by ‘embedding’ a hedge into the loan facility. The Banks have attempted to deny that these are in fact embedded hedging products and as a result of this denial, TBLs have so far been excluded from the FCA review on IRHP mis-selling.
Despite this, and because it has become apparent that many businesses were sold TBLs which were entirely unsuitable for them, more and more companies are coming forward with details of their experiences under the TBL mis-selling scandal. Bank Treasury and Sales staff often did not explain the true nature and risks of the products properly and some companies became locked into unsuitable products for considerable periods of time.
