When it comes to stashing away your hard-earned cash, we’ve got a clear idea of how savings should be.

We’ve been helping people save for their future for nearly 150 years, so we’ve learned a thing or two along the way. But our heritage isn’t just about age. It’s about experience, reliability and a rock-solid foundation that’s stood the test of time.

We believe savings should be easy, accessible and in your interest. Read on to find out why.

Our network of branches

Let’s debunk a myth straight away: despite our name, we’re not just a one-city wonder. In fact, we have 50 branches spread all across the UK! You can find us in bustling cities as well as smaller towns, so we’re never too far away from your local branch.

And if you prefer the convenience of digital banking, our website is just a click away, ready to serve you 24/7.

Friendly faces

Got a burning question about your savings? Our friendly team will greet you with a smile and help you with whatever you need - you can pick up the phone or pop into your local branch.

Whether you’re a savings newbie or a seasoned pro, we’re here to demystify the process so you can make the most out of your money. Need help opening the right savings account? Want to understand how interest works? Just give us a shout – we’re here to help.

Online made easy

Who’s got time for endless paperwork and long-winded forms? Not you! That’s why we’ve made it easier to save with us online. Our online platform has been refreshed to make it easier for you to manage your money 24/7. With just a few clicks, you can take the first step towards building your savings from the comfort of your own home. Say goodbye to the headaches and hello to hassle-free savings.

Going above and beyond

When it comes to interest rates, we don’t mess around. In 2023, we raised the bar by paying a whopping 0.59% above the average market rate*. That works out to be an extra £110 million in interest lining our members’ pockets! We’re not just here to meet expectations, we’re here to exceed them. After all, your savings deserve nothing less.

We’re owned and driven by you

You might be wondering – what’s the deal with this whole ‘mutual’ thing? Let us break it down for you.

As a mutual we’re owned by you – our members – not some faceless shareholders. That means our priorities are crystal clear. We exist to support you, allowing us to offer competitive rates, provide top-notch service, and give back by helping good causes.

So, what are you waiting for? Join our savings revolution! It’s easy, accessible and backed by our longstanding heritage – just how savings should be.
