The voice for building societies

The Building Societies Association (BSA) is the voice for building societies and for some other mutual financial service providers. Together these organisations serve around 26 million customers across the UK.

We speak out on issues that are relevant to building societies and their members (borrowers and savers).  We provide technical information to our members on a huge range of topics.  Our economists and specialist policy teams have expertise covering mortgages and housing; savings; financial policy and legal, governance and compliance matters.

Building societies have total assets of over £507 billion, and hold residential mortgage balances of over £375 billion – this equates to 23% of all outstanding mortgages in the UK. They also hold over £370 billion of retail deposits – 19% of all such deposits in the UK. BSA members employ approximately 51,500 full and part-time staff and operate through approximately 1,300 branches.
