Lloyds BANK International

For much of the 20th century, Lloyds Bank’s foreign interests were focused on Western Europe and South America. International expansion began with the purchase of Armstrong & Co. in 1911, which was renamed Lloyds Bank (France).

In 1918, Lloyds acquired a controlling interest in the London & Brazilian Bank. This merged with the London & River Plate Bank in 1923, to create the Bank of London & South America (BOLSA).

Lloyds Bank International was eventually absorbed into the main Lloyds group in 1986.
