On January 11th 2010 the Abbey brand was replaced with Santander. In 2004 Abbey became part of the Santander Group – ranked as the seventh largest bank in the world by market capitalisation with 65 million customers worldwide. The combination of the heritage and familiarity of the Abbey brand backed by the experience, expertise and systems of Santander have been driving Abbey's plans to become the best bank in the UK. As part of Santander, Abbey’s first half 2008 profit grew by 20% and it is now one of the largest providers of mortgages and savings accounts in the UK

Abbey first established the National Freehold Land and Building Society in 1849. In 1944 it became Abbey National through the merger with the Abbey Road Building Society.  In July 1989, it was the first building society to convert to plc status and to be floated on the London Stock Exchange.

Santander main offices are in London, Milton Keynes, Bradford, Glasgow and Belfast.
