Building Society - Mutuals' role in local economic & community development

20 November 2013

The Building Societies Association represents a diverse group of financial services providers; some are household names, delivering services across the UK, some operate only in certain areas and are more familiar to the people who live there; whilst others operate nationally out of a single office location. What unites these institutions stems from the fact they are not shareholder-owned, rather they are either wholly or majority-owned by the people that actually save or borrow with them, their customers, sometimes called members.

'Building Society - Mutuals' role in local economic & community development' issued by the BSA, takes a look at the economic impact these organisations have. Inside the report you will find details about:

  • the commercial role of mutuals
  • branches, geographic employment and investment
  • impact when working with civil society partners
  • volunteering and mutuals' role in their local communities

A full copy of the report "Building Society – mutuals’ role in local economic & community development" can be viewed as a pdf here and as a flickbook here.
