Our Story
Founded in 1869, we've been serving our members for over 150 years.
As a mutual building society, our members' needs are at the heart of everything we do.

We are a building society, not a bank

We were founded as a mutual building society over 150 years ago, and we believe that the mutual model is as effective as it has ever been.

When you contact us, be it over the phone or face-to-face in one of our branches or agencies, it’s important to us to make sure you know we are a mutual building society, not a bank.

Unlike banks, we are owned by our members. We don't have shareholders to satisfy, so we are free to re-invest profit back into the Society to benefit current and future members. 

That's what being mutual is all about.

We answer to our members

If you have a savings account or mortgage with us, you are a member of Monmouthshire Building Society.

Whether you’ve just joined us or have been a member for many years, as a member you play a vital role in the Society and its future.

Every decision of ours is made with the interests of our members in mind. With your help, we develop our products and services to meet your needs. 

Have your say

Each Year, we invite members to our Annual General Meeting (AGM), where you’re given the opportunity to pose questions to the Board and vote on various resolutions. 

We also welcome our members to join our Member Matters Community, where you can help us improve by taking part in surveys and research projects.
