Who we are

The co-operative values on which we built the bank over 145 years ago still stand today. They are more than the foundations of the bank, they are what connect us together – colleagues, consumers, the businesses we bank, charities we support and the issues we stand for.

If you're responsible for the banking needs of a business or community organisation, you're already likely to have a pretty clear view of what you're looking for from your bank.

We pioneer banking that makes a positive difference to the lives of our customers and communities.

Our Vision

To be the efficient and financially sustainable UK retail and SME bank that's distinguished by co-operative values.
