Santander International Expands Services in the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man
Following a rebrand at the end of 2016, Santander International has expanded its team by one third and is developing its service offering to Channel Island residents. In December 2016, the Jersey branch of Santander Private Banking and Santander Corporate Banking rebranded with the Isle of Man branch of Santander to form Santander International. The new brand united the three organisations under one entity, combining the offering across both jurisdictions and ensuring customers were able to benefit from a broader selection of services.
The business transformation has led to significant growth and development for Santander International, which has welcomed 35 new employees since the rebrand - five in Jersey and 30 to the Isle of Man. The Jersey branch of Santander International offers varying levels of banking and savings accounts to accommodate all Channel Island residents, as well as UK expats and UK residents who have international banking needs. Reaction to the recently launched brand has been very positive, with clients drawn to the idea of a personal service delivered locally and supported by one of the largest banking groups in the world.
The rebrand will also enable the company to offer Mortgages to Channel Island residents, a service that is currently only offered to Isle of Man residents. Plans to open a retail bank at the company’s premises on Commercial Street are also underway for delivery in 2018.
James Pountney, Managing Director, Santander International, says:
‘Our transformation to Santander International has united a variety of services under one brand. Since the rebrand we have already seen a very significant interest in the range of services we are able to offer Jersey residents. The varying level of banking offered, as well as our intention to introduce mortgages and retail banking, demonstrates our commitment to Jersey residents. As these services continue to grow, so does our team and everyone at Santander International is committed to offering the very highest level of personal and corporate banking in the Channel Islands.’
