The bank was founded in January 2000. It received financing from Benchmark Capital.
In November 2000, the bank began offering insurance products.
In August 2002, the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce made an additional $50 million investment in the company, bringing its ownership stake to 89%. Benchmark Capital sued, claiming that the terms of the offering were not fair.
On May 25, 2006, the bank was folded into Barclays credit card division and renamed.
