Intelligent Finance Uk was launched in 2000 as a new concept in personal finance as a telephone and internet based bank.
IF Intelligent Finance Bank is a division of Bank of Scotland plc, which merged in 2001 with the Halifax Group (formerly the Halifax Building Society) to form a new banking group called Halifax Bank of Scotland (HBOS) - but retaining both Halifax and the Bank of Scotland as brand names.
HBOS agreed in 2008 deal in midst of the credit crisis to be acquired by Lloyds TSB. The combined group would be one of the largest financial institutions in the banking industry. HBOS also owns a 50% stake in Sainsbury's Finance Bank - the other 50% being owned by J Sainsbury plc.
Intelligent Finance for Life Insurance purposes did not offer their own plans but used products provided via Legal & General. As part of Lloyds TSB they used Scottish Widows.
Intelligent Finance however did not use brokers but marketed its own plans via its sales & marketing mainly across the web rather than a visit from a Financial adviser.
In 2020 they no longer offer mortgages to new clients, so therefore no longer promote their life insurance protection either.
Intelligent Finance Life Insurance via Scottish Widows included Life cover, decreasing (mortgage protection) or level term assurance, Critical Illness, Terminal Illness & accident and sickness cover.
