Nationwide isn't a bank

We’re a building society, or mutual, owned by our members. That’s anyone who banks, saves or has a mortgage with us. We’re run for their benefit and to help the communities around us. We’re not run for shareholders in the same way that banks are.

  • Membership
    Member-only products are just one of the benefits of being a member of Nationwide. Another is that you get to have your say in how we’re run through regular talkback events and Annual General Meetings.

  • Social investment
    Improving communities is at the heart of everything we do. Our vision is for everyone to have a place fit to call home. We give 1% of pre-tax profits to charities to help build a better society.

  • Branch promise
    If we currently have a branch in your town or city, we’ll still be there until at least 2024. And your branch will continue to have its own, dedicated branch manager. Find out more about our branch promise.

  • Building mutual respect
    We want to help create a society that’s built on mutual respect. That’s why we’re partnering with other organisations committed to creating a more caring and respectful society, in all walks of life. Discover how we’re helping promote mutual respect.

Building a greener society, nationwide

We’re passionate about making it easier for us all to do our bit for the planet. Because small changes to our homes and habits can make a big difference.

Have your say

Our members are effectively our owners. So we believe we should be accountable to them. That’s why we give them every opportunity to tell us what they think about how we work.
