SANTANDER CENTRAL HISPANO: During2006, perhaps partly influenced by its purchase of British bank Abbey, the SantanderCentral Hispano has greatly improved its understanding of the needs of non-Spanish(and particularly British) property buyers in Spain, and has adapted its structureand products to cater for them accordingly.
The SantanderBank is Spain's largest bank, and places corporate emphasis on international expansionand quality close customer relations. It has invested time and resources in improvingits ebanking interface in recent months, and the resulting online banking systemis straightforward, user-friendly and extremely secure. British clients who haveaccounts with Abbey also have the added advantage of low-cost international banktransfers.
