CYBG, the owner of both Clydesdale Bank and Yorkshire Bank, has signed a seven year deal to exclusively work with Mastercard.

As part of the deal, all credit, debit and commercial cards from the two banks will be on the Mastercard network.

Mark Barnett, divisional president for Mastercard UK and Ireland, said: “CYBG is an exciting and diverse challenger bank, and already a valued Mastercard partner.

“Our renewed agreement will see us issuing even more Mastercard cards in the UK, as well as focusing on security and fraud solutions so that CYBG customers can benefit from some of our newest innovations.”

The renewed partnership with CYBG is set to focus on safety and security, with Mastercard innovations hoping to protect customers from fraud.

In addition, Mastercard will support the digital business from CYBG, B, launched last and now has over 100,000 customers.
