Halifax is a UK bank, trading as part of the Bank of Scotland, which in itself is part of the Lloyds Banking Group. In the UK, Halifax is the largest provider of savings accounts and mortgages.
Halifax is named after the town in Yorkshire, where it was first founded as a building society in 1853. 60 years later, it had become the largest building society in the UK, holding this position until it was demutualised in 1997.
In 1997, Halifax floated on the London Stock Exchange for the first time. Over 7.5 million people who had been customers of the building society became a shareholder in the new bank.
In 2001, the bank merged with the Royal Bank of Scotland, creating HBOS. HBOS was later acquired by the Lloyds Banking Group in 2009.
The current managing director of Halifax is Russell Galley. The bank has become well known for its advertising tagline: ‘the people who give you extra’. The headquarters can still be found in Halifax.
