The origins of Leumi UK

While the Leumi Group has its roots in London as far back as 1902, the company that would become Leumi UK as we know it was first incorporated in 1959.

Leumi’s historic parent company, the Anglo-Palestine Bank – which had been based in London since its inception – merged with the Anglo-Israel Bank and formed the group’s official UK subsidiary.

From that beginning, Leumi UK grew to become the bank we know today. To read more about Leumi UK’s journey, see Our History.

The future

Over the course of our hundred-plus-year history, there have been changes impacting every field; from politics to economics, science and technology.  This is no less true of organisations that need to change and adapt in order to prosper. Certainly, we made several key organisational changes when and where needed over the years and redesigned our business model to keep the bank safe and strong.

We have evolved to remain resilient so that we can face the future with confidence. This is a measure of our strength.

For 60 years, we have been providing lending and related banking services to a wide range of corporate customers, with whom we have developed stable and trusting relationships. We will continue to strengthen these relationships as we grow.
