We're owned by members
As a building society, we’re different to banks. People can buy shares in a bank, even if they don’t have an account or use its services. If the bank performs well, the shareholders get a share of its earnings (a dividend).
We don’t answer to shareholders or pay dividends. Instead, our members influence the direction of the business by voting for directors and holding the board to account at our AGM, which means we can focus our attention on you.
When you’re part of a mutual, your opinion matters
Members of Skipton Building Society have a say in how the business is run. It’s called mutuality and it underpins everything we do. Your feedback makes a difference to the decisions we make, on anything from how our marketing materials look to the way we communicate with you. Find out how you can have your say.
