Lloyds Bank International was a Spanish bank and trading name of Sabadell Solbank, owned by Banco Sabadell. The bank was established as Banco Halifax in 1993, as the Spanish subsidiary of Halifax. Banco Halifax became part of the Lloyds Banking Group in 2009 and was renamed Lloyds Bank International.

Lloyds Banking Group reached an agreement in April 2013 to sell the bank to Banco Sabadell.[1] The Lloyds Bank name was used under temporary licence.[2] The bank was renamed Sabadell Solbank in November 2013, and was fully integrated into Sabadell on 15 March 2014.[3]

With effect from 23 September 2013, the name of Lloyds TSB Offshore Limited was changed to Lloyds Bank International Limited. The original Lloyds Bank International was merged into Lloyds Bank by Act of Parliament in 1986.
