£11.8 billion (Lloyds Banking Group)
It is named after the town of Halifax, West Yorkshire where it was founded as a building society in 1853. By 1913 It had developed into the UK’s largest building society and continued to grow and prosper and maintained this position within the UK until 1997 when it demutualised.
In 1997 it became Halifax plc, a public limited company which was a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index. In 2001 Halifax plc merged with The Governor and Company of the Bank of Scotland, forming HBOS. In 2006, the HBOS Group Reorganisation Act 2006 legally transferred the assets and liabilities of the Halifax chain to Bank of Scotland which became a standard plc, with Halifax becoming a division of Bank of Scotland. A takeover of HBOS by Lloyds TSB was approved by the Court of Session on 12 January 2009, and on 19 January 2009 Bank of Scotland, including Halifax, formally became part of Lloyds Banking Group.

Putting customers first

Keeping it simple
Keeping it simple means making ourselves easy to do business with, communicating clearly and openly, identifying opportunities to simplify the things we do and working to get things right first time every time.
Making a difference together
Making a difference together means working together to deliver for customers, using feedback to improve what we do, treating people fairly and acting responsibly at all times and contributing positively to the communities we serve.
