Lloyds Banking Group to invest in Bink for customer loyalty 

Lloyds Banking Group is set to invest in loyalty app Bink, Sky News has reported. 

In Brief:

The bank will invest “millions” for a minority stake, says Sky. 

Bink is an app enabling customers to link loyalty schemes to their payment cards. 

It works with retailers such as Harvey Nichols, Iceland and Wasabi.

Lloyds will be the second major UK bank to take a stake in Bink, following on from Barclays which invested £10mn in 2019.
