  • 4th largest bank in UK
  • •Biggest mortgage, savings and home
  • •insurance provider in UK
  • Biggest issuer of new credit cards in UK
  • •23 million customers
  • •71,000 employee

The external DCA reconciliation at HBOS now stands at 97.6% by volume and 99.5% by value.

HBOS achieved a 12% lift in liquidation in the first four months of using PlacementsPlus service.
