Halifax Online Banking
Halifax is a UK-based bank owned by the established, and prestigious, Lloyds Banking Group.
It is the largest provider of residential mortgages and savings accounts in the country. It also boasts a considerable internet banking platform that provides customers worldwide a litany of banking options, no matter what their currency may be.
Halifax began as a major building society within Britain and has since blossomed into one of the world's largest banks. It provides online banking tools that allow for mortgage and account management for more than 3 million of the bank's customers. It also allows for paper-free banking transactions through online statement delivery and electronic check scanning.
The bank also boasts an impressive "online money transfer" application for currency exchange and international money transfers. It is now possible for Halifax customers to move British pounds, American dollars, or other currencies using the internet banking application. The service is available at any time of day and only requires a valid routing and account number for the receipt of funds.

Over time, Halifax hopes to add the ability to apply for, receive, and begin the use of credit cards entirely through an online interface.
