28-29 High Street,
We are, fundamentally, a retail bank with over 13,000 branches worldwide - more than any other international bank. Santander has already a strong presence in the UK through its ownership of Abbey and more recently, Bradford & Bingley’s savings accounts and branches.
The addition of Alliance & Leicester will further strengthen our UK presence. A&L has strengths in areas where Abbey intended to grow and both banks have built reputations as challengers to the big banks with attractive offers such as high-interest current accounts, strong savings rates and good mortgage and credit card deals.
