National Savings rebrands

National Savings has unveiled a new brand and new corporate logo, expanding its name to National Savings and Investments.

The Treasury backed savings and investments provider says it is making the change to reflect the way people think about savings and investments.

Other changes being made will see an expansion of distribution channels for NS&I&#39s products including the launch of a 24 hour telephone service and a soon to be released website which allows the purchase of six savings products.

Treasury Economic Secretary Ruth Kelly says: “The transformed National Savings and Investments is an organisation with a proud past and one which has a very clear role for savers and investors today and in the future.”
