NBNK looks to strengthen Lloyds bid

Investment vehicle NBNK is discussing the takeover of National Australia Bank’s UK assets, the Telegraph reports, in a deal that will kick-start the formation of a new banking group that could challenge Britain’s largest lenders. The new venture, which was set up by Lord Levene to acquire banking assets, is in early talks that could lead to an offer for Clydesdale and Yorkshire banks, the two brands NAB owns in the UK.
