The CSBA exists to rebuild a network of independent, local banks in the UK. For the the first time in the UK, those banks will be owned by and answerable to their customers. We believe that mutual trust is fundamental to a long-term partnership between us and our bank. Click on the coin below to understand more of what we believe needs to be in place for mutual trust to exist.
Creating a local bank is not for the faint hearted. The expertise need, the complexity of the process and the considerable costs have put many people off. We have made it easier, simpler, less risky, quicker and cheaper for each region to setup its own independent, customer owned bank. We done this in six key ways.
When the local banks are up and running they will own and control the CSBA. If you would like more information on who's involved in the CSBA please click here.
