Remaining an independent family-controlled company

Hodge was founded in 1965 but obtained authorised status under the Banking Act in 1987, but it has a heritage that can be traced back to the 1950s and the man behind Chartered Trust plc and Bank of Wales plc. All of these institutions were founded by Sir Julian Hodge, who has been widely acknowledged as being instrumental in the development of the financial services sector of South Wales.

Although Lloyds Banking Group now owns Chartered Trust plc and Bank of Wales plc, Hodge Bank is still an independent family-controlled company, something which remains an integral part of their culture and philosophy.
