The long-awaited merger between Halifax and Bank of Scotland has taken place four months after it was first announced and has been marked with the launch of a new website.
The website contains details of the new company, although brokers will still need to go through respective retail routes for products and information.
Mark Hemingway, press office manager at Halifax, said: ‘Bank of Scotland will continue to conduct most of its business in Scotland and Halifax.
‘But in the next few months, we will be looking at what products should go through which channels and there will be some harmonisation of the product range. However, the separate brands will still be continuing in their own right.’
