Groundbreaking Scottish banking

Clydesdale bank was created in 1838, with the intention of having “few branches, but correspondents in many cities”. It was formed by businessmen with radically liberal views, who participated in the running of their local areas with great vigour. Throughout the rest of the 19th century, Clydesdale procured branches of other Scottish banks. Thanks to prudent lending practises and public knowledge of the bank’s reliability, Clydesdale had branches all over Scotland by the beginning of the 1900s.

Clydesdale branches numbered more than 150 by the end of the First World War, and it attracted the attention of the London and Midland bank. Although Clydesdale initially resisted the purchase, the deal was completed in 1920. Clydesdale remained independent, and was treated as an “affiliate” rather than a subsidiary bank. However, the bank was bought by the National Australia Bank in 1987, then merged with Virgin Money in 2018.
