Child & Co provides personal, private and business banking services to clients in the UK, including many of the UK’s biggest law and accountancy firms.
Its Fleet Street premises are close to the law courts and the legal heart of London, which is very much in keeping with the bespoke service the bank offers – outstanding customer care for the long term. It’s testament to this professionalism that Child & Co is considered the bank of choice within legal circles. Many barristers and lawyers join Child & Co as they’re starting out in their careers and remain with the bank throughout their working lives.
The bank’s ‘Marygold’ logo is based on a sign first referred to in 1544. At that time, and into the 18th century, pictorial street signs were common as illiteracy was widespread and street numbers rare.
By 1661 the 'Marygold' sign was hanging outside premises in the Strand occupied by the goldsmith Robert Blanchard which survived the Plague and the Great Fire of London.
In 1673 Robert Blanchard took the sign with him when he moved to part of the bank’s current site in Fleet Street.
In 1988 Child & Co adopted a new logo, based on the Marygold symbol.
The flower and sun motif remains at the heart of the brand’s identity today, as it has done since at least 1661.
