CAPITAL BANK Marine Changes Name

The Bank of Scotland’s marine branch, CAPITAL BANK Marine, announces that it is to be called Bank of Scotland Marine Finance.

CAPITAL BANK Marine has been the name for the Bank of Scotland’s marine branch since September 1997 and has been dual-branded with the Bank of Scotland logo for about a year. The name change utilises the huge public awareness of the Bank of Scotland brand which should further consolidate the company’s position as the UK’s leading supplier of specialist marine finance.

“We have worked hard to establish CAPITAL BANK Marine as a strong name within the marine industry but much of the trade are already aware that we are a Bank of Scotland Group company.

The move from CAPITAL BANK Marine to Bank of Scotland Marine Finance is a natural progression for us to make and in today’s world of brand consolidation I don’t think anyone will be that surprised. We have much to gain in the medium to long term as we benefit from a strong and trusted brand name and we look forward to the coming year with interest.”
