Screentrade to re-launch
Screentrade logo
The Screentrade brand was bought from Misys
Screentrade, an online insurance broker now owned by Lloyds TSB, is to re-open to new business on 12 November.

Lloyds TSB bought the Screentrade brand from Misys, a computer software company, for 900,000 in July, because of the site's high media profile

The site will offer home, motor and travel cover from nine insurers initially, including AXA, Norwich Union, Cornhill and Zurich.

"It is an exciting brand and we want to build on where Misys left," said Nils Kirk of Screentrade.

Mark two

Lloyds TSB now has a growing stable of online ventures.

It recently announced that it would be launching an online car buying service, which sells second-hand cars.

It has also set up Evolvebank.com in Spain, while Lloyds TSB Registrars runs Shareview.co.uk, which allows investors to check their holdings in UK companies.

However, this is the bank's first venture into insurance broking.
