A while ago I’d clocked that iWeb is run by Halifax, which is worth bearing in mind for those concerned with having some FSCS protection. But I only just realised that, of course, Lloyds and Halifax are now part of the same group. So presumably, iWeb, Halifax and Lloyds would all count as the same institution for FSCS purposes?

And am I correct in thinking that Interactive Investor and Motley Fool are also a single institution? Or is their relationship something different?
