A good way to bank

Unlike the banks we are owned by our members, not shareholders. That’s anyone who banks, saves or has a mortgage with us. Which means we can always focus on what’s best for them. It’s our fundamental difference and what makes us a good way to bank.


Member-only products are just 1 of the benefits of being a member of Nationwide. You also get a say in how we’re run through our Annual General Meeting (AGM).

For the good of society

We give 1% of our pre-tax profits to charities. Because we’re guided by a social purpose and aim to make communities better places to live.

Branch Promise

We know the importance of face-to-face banking. So, everywhere we have a branch, we promise to still be there until at least the start of 2028.

We've changed how we look

But not what makes us different.

Our history

We first opened our doors in 1884. And since then we’ve always focused on what’s best for our members. Find out more about our journey to becoming a modern mutual.
