The TSB has a long and distinguished history as a savings bank dating back to 1810

The first bank was opened in Dumfriesshire by a local minister with the sole aim of serving the local people in the community.

All the Trustee Savings Banks were amalgamated into the TSB Group by 1985, and floated on the Stock Exchange.
