Isle of Man-based offshore bank Singer & Friedlander is to be re-branded, following its acquisition by Icelandic institution Kaupthing Bank.
The bank will be called Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander. At this stage, there will be no changes to any of the products as a result of the move, according to Anthony Brand, marketing manager at Singers.
The onshore division will rebrand first in September, followed by the offshore bank.
Since, the acquisition was announced in July 2005, Armann Thorvaldsson, group head of investment banking at Kaupthing Bank, has taken over as chief executive officer of Singer & Friedlander.
Warwick Jones, who was Singer & Friedlander's chief operating officer and finance director, has since left the bank.
Singer & Friedlander (Isle of Man) offers a range of banking services designed for overseas residents, expatriates, international investors and companies who trade, invest or employ overseas. Products include multi-currency instant access accounts.
