Halifax plc

Halifax plc was created in the mid-1990s when the Halifax Building Society was demutualised and shares were sold on the London Stock Exchange. As a mutual building society the Halifax was one of Britain's major financial institutions.

In the summer of 2001 it was agreed to merge the Halifax with the Bank of Scotland to form HBOS plc (Halifax Bank of Scotland), which is one of the largest commercial banks in Britain.
