品牌介绍:   
  全英房屋贷款协会是英国最大的房屋贷款协会(为会员提供金融服务以资助其购房,通常为抵押贷款方式)。总部位于英格兰斯文顿,在北安普顿也有重要的管理机构。拥有一千三百万会员,两千万账户和全英国19000名员工。是英国唯一一个能够自己承兑支票,能够提供全球完全免交易费服务(无论是电子还是现金)的金融机构,当然前提是要用印有本公司VISA字样的借记卡。

  全英房屋贷款协会既可提供直接金融服务,也可通过大约680的分支机构与200家代理处提供金融服务。它是英国提供抵押贷款和存款账户的一个主要机构,与个人银行和商业银行类似。

  The Society's dual origins lie in Northampton (1848) and within the co-operative movement in London (1883) respectively. Over a hundred mergers later—most notably the merger between the Nationwide and the Anglia Building Societies in 1987—they are now the UK's second largest mortgage lender and savings provider. More significantly, it is the largest building society in the world and committed to staying mutual. The company is keen to emphasise that it does not have "shareholders", it has "members".

  On 12th September 2006 the Society announced plans to merge with Portman Building Society, creating a mutual body with assets of more than £160bn. This merger completed successfully on 28th August 2007.
