State Bank of India to launch residential mortgages in August

State Bank of India has confirmed that it will launch a range of residential mortgages in the UK in August.

Mortgage Strategy revealed in September 2011 that India’s largest bank was looking at entering the residential sector in 2012, after launching a number of buy-to-let deals through its branches.

SBI, which is 59.41% owned by the Indian government, is the 50th largest bank in the world.
