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.
