Who we are

Our journey begins in 1765 with a Birmingham button maker and an iron dealer. We’ve grown a bit since then, but through booms, recessions and recoveries, we’ve always believed in the value and power of relationships – and what these can do for our customers.

Today, more than 240 years on, we help our customers get to where they want to be in life by delivering expert relationship banking.

Our heritage

The origins of Lloyds Bank stretch back to 1765, when John Taylor and Sampson Lloyd set up a private banking business in Birmingham.
