Nationwide lending by postcode

About this page

To improve understanding of where our lending takes place, Nationwide publishes data setting out activity by postcode for mortgage lending (for owner occupation and buy to let) and personal loans.

The files you can download on this page set out the total lending for around 10,000 sectors. These also contain total lending balances, a search tool to find sectors, and more details on this process.

We report every 3 months, and publish the data 6 months after the reporting date.

About this information

The total lending analysed does not directly correspond with other available lending figures, such as those within the financial accounts. There are three reasons why:

  • We prepare the financial accounts on a different basis (for example, including accounting adjustments that are not reflected in the postcode sector data).
  • Not all data can be allocated to a full postcode (for example, the listed postcode may no longer be active, or records may not include the postcode information).
  • Some data has not been published to protect customer confidentiality (for example, where there are only a small number of loans in any one sector).

Mortgages data

Personal loans data


Other large organisations publish their lending to small businesses (SME lending) as well as mortgages and personal loans. Nationwide’s lending to small businesses is limited, which is why we don’t include it here.
