Our values and ethics have always been more than just words

At The Co-operative Bank we've put our ethics into action for 150 years. Not because we've been told to, but because it's the right thing to do. 

Join the only UK bank with a customer-led Ethical Policy and have a say in where your money goes.

Independent service quality survey results

Personal current accounts

As part of a regulatory requirement, an independent survey was conducted to ask approximately 1000 customers of each of the 17 largest personal current account providers if they would recommend their provider to friends and family. The results represent the view of customers who took part in the survey.
