TSB will become Britain’s eighth biggest high-street bank when it is relaunched next week as a standalone brand 18 years after disappearing when it merged with Lloyds.
Lloyds Banking Group is transferring more than 4.6 million customers to the revived TSB – famous for its 1980s slogan “the bank that likes to say yes”.
Its logo, featuring white lettering on blue circles, will replace the Lloyds black horse emblem as well as the Cheltenham and Gloucester brand at 631 branches – including sites in Norfolk and Suffolk.
The bank’s mission statement harks back to the founding of the Trustee Savings Bank movement more than 200 years ago when the Reverend Henry Duncan created a “bank for hard-working local people”.
Lloyds chief executive Antonio Horta-Osorio has said the retail and commercial business will be a challenger on the high street.
He has described it as a “completely clean bank” untainted by the turbulence that has threatened to overwhelm the financial sector in recent years.
