De Volksbank is an independent, purely Dutch bank holding company with four distinctive brands that is close to its customers.
We are a bank with a focus on the Dutch market, offering simple and transparent mortgage, savings and payment products to private individuals. De Volksbank also offers insurance, investment and lending services through its brands and serves smaller companies in a retail manner.
De Volksbank is pursuing a multi-brand strategy with ASN Bank, BLG Wonen, RegioBank and SNS. Each of these brands has its own distinctive profile that meets the needs of their customer group. A single back office, a powerful IT infrastructure and a central staff organisation allow de Volksbank to operate effectively and efficiently.
SNS is a 'normal', no-frills bank with online banking services and 188 shops all over the country. ASN Bank thus aims at customers through the Internet and is greatly committed to 'the world of tomorrow’. RegioBank helps people in smaller communities with all their financial affairs, no matter how large or small, through local intermediaries. BLG Wonen also primarily distributes its products through intermediaries. With expert advice and sound financial products, the bank helps customers to make their housing wishes come true. De Volksbank is headquartered in Utrecht.
History of social involvement
The brands of de Volksbank all have a history of social involvement. SNS emerged from a partnership of savings banks. The first were established in 1817 to enable poor people to build a small financial buffer. ASN Bank and RegioBank were union institutions. BLG Wonen was established to help miners to buy their own home.
