Co-operatives are unique, because their members are stakeholders at different levels. This leads to more collaborative, long-term ways of engaging in business.
Co-operatives are business with unique qualities and ways of working, that provide a more collective, long-term approach to economic growth. By our very nature, we work more closely together, share knowledge and provide opportunities in ways that are impossible for shareholder- driven businesses.
From the outset, a co-operative may look like any other financial business. It’s what goes on inside that makes our bank qualitatively different.
