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 25 million customers across the UK.
Our objective at the BSA is to push for the best outcomes for building societies and our other members from the plethora of new and changing regulation and legislation in the UK and Europe. To do this we work with, amongst others, the UK Government, the EU Commission, Council and Parliament and regulators, especially the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). In Europe we are a member of the European Association of Co-operative Banks (EACB).
We also 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 hold residential mortgage balances of almost £338 billion – this equates to 23% of all outstanding mortgages in the UK. They also hold almost £297 billion of retail deposits – 17% of all such deposits in the UK – including 37% of cash ISA balances. BSA members employ 42,500 full and part-time staff and operate through approximately 1,470 branches.
