History of Lloyds


Lloyds Bank is one of the oldest banks in England, founded in 1765. In 1995, Lloyds merged with TSB Group to form Lloyds TSB Group. In 2009, Lloyds TSB acquires HBOS, the holding company of Bank of Scotland and is then renamed into Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY). This merger will have made it inherit the problems of HBOS related to the crisis of 2008, forcing the government to reinject money.

Between 2013 and 2015, the British government sold, over time, almost all of its shares in the bank (which were about 35%). This, coupled with the fallout from the 2008 crisis, will be responsible for the loss of more than 45,000 jobs over the period 2008-2015. In May 2017, the British government completely divested from Lloyds.

Today, Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) is still one of the four largest English banks.
