Santander is the fifth largest UK bank and it is owned by Spanish banking giant, the Santander Group. Santander entered the UK in 2004 when it bought the building society Abbey National. IT went onto buy two more building societies - Alliance & Leicester and Bradford & Bingley - in the wake of the financial crisis.
Santander offers a full range of banking products, including current accounts, savings accounts, credit cards and personal loans. It’s also one of the largest mortgage providers in the UK.
It offers several insurance products, with its home and life policies being underwritten by Aviva. Its car insurance product is provided by the BISL and its travel insurance by Chubb European Group SE.
