Advanta Financial Corp., 11850 S. Election Road, a small business line of credit, savings deposit and product leasing company, has changed its name to Advanta Bank Corp. and will continue to be insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

Larry Richards, chief executive officer, said although the name has changed to more accurately describe the products and services the company offers, everything else about the company remains the same. "In no way will our customers' account information be changed," he said.
