Metro Bank cuts ties with design firm owned by founder's wife

Challenger bank’s £25m of work given to InterArch raised
conflict of interest questions

Metro Bank has severed links with the architecture firm owned by
the wife of its chairman amid criticism over £25m worth of
payments made by the lender to the business.

The move came as the challenger bank, which
clinched a £375m fundraising
this week, seeks to improve its
corporate reputation after a major accounting error.
