Key themes

Finding the future of the sector

What are the key challenges facing the mutual sector? From keeping pace with new technologies and staying competitive with new entrants to the financial services sector, there is a lot to juggle. Does regulation protect the unique characteristics of mutual organisations or is change needed? In the UK, what are the key asks that the sector will be looking for from the next government?

Powering the transition to Net Zero

Mitigating the effects of climate change will require the participation of all sectors of economies and societies. Is the mutual sector primed to lead the way forward when it comes to sustainable finance initiatives? Can the sector leverage its famously purpose-driven approach to provide a better world for members and the environment?

Lending & mortgage innovation

The dream of home ownership is pervasive. It is also crucial to meet needs of existing borrowers as interest rates rise. Access to credit more broadly is a practical necessity. How are building societies, credit unions and community banks innovating their loans and mortgages to support would be and existing homeowners and those who stand to benefit from better lending products?

Financial inclusion & health

Reaching the financially excluded and underserved is in the DNA of the mutual sector. Mutuals are committed to their local communities and that means financial education and, crucially, providing them with access to the most suitable products and services. Is the mutual sector delivering on those goals and what are some of the initiatives that are delivering results?

Digital transformation

Can and should mutuals develop their product offering to satisfy the growing appetite for digital-first services? Are they well positioned to bring onboard the right digital expertise and leverage technology to make innovation work for staff in an increasingly competitive fintech marketplace? What is the role of partnerships between mutuals and innovative new entrants and tech providers to the financial services industry?

Meeting the news of tomorrow’s membership

Can the mutual sector deliver the products and services that best meet the needs and evolving expectations of not just today’s membership, but also the next generation? Will digital natives and young people be drawn to the ethos of purpose-led organisations or will they gravitate towards digital providers that offer the tailored and digital experiences they demand?
