New Isle of Man base for A&L Intl

Alliance & Leicester International is opening a new corporate headquarters on the Isle of Man.

The mortgage bank&#39s new home has its official opening on October 4.

The aim is to improve the company&#39s profile both locally and internation-ally. It has been doing business on the island for 10 years.

Group managing director Peter McNamara says the Isle of Man operation is likely to increase.

It currently accounts for 10 per cent of group deposits.

He says: “We all know that first impressions count and while I am extremely proud of what has been achieved with our move to Alliance & Leicester House, the key issue that we will continue to review and address is how we serve our customers.”
