About this Business
Nationwide has mutual (as opposed to Public Limited Company) status, which means that they are owned by and run for the benefit of their members. They are one of the top three savings providers and mortgage lenders in the UK. More significantly, they are the largest building society in the world. They approach to providing financial services is incredibly straight-forward. They aim to offer a broad range of great value mortgages, savings and other financial products, while charging as little as possible for day-to-day services. They take pride in doing our best for their members and championing the rights of all consumers. They fought for honesty and transparency in the credit card market and were the first provider to publish a Summary Box on all their credit card information. The Summary Box highlights all fees and charges which most providers hide in their small print. All UK credit card providers publish Summary Boxes which enable consumers to compare cards from different providers, and allow them to make a more informed choice. We've over 160 years of expertise and experience at being a building society, looking after the interests of our members. And they intend to deliver great value to their members as a modern, mutual building society for many years to come.
