Is Tide a bank?

We’re not a bank. The Tide current account is provided by our partner with Prepay Solutions (PPS), which is an electronic money institution authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority under the Electronic Money Regulations 2011 (FRN 900010) for the issuing of electronic money. PPS holds an amount equivalent to the money in Tide current accounts in a safeguarding account with Barclays Bank PLC which gives customers protection against PPS’ insolvency.
