Event description

Description

Join us in Salisbury to discuss the social, economic and environmental case for regional banks and the development of Avon Mutual, a co-operative bank dedicated to the West of England.

At the RSA we are supporting Avon Mutual (which covers Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Bristol, Bath & North Somerset) as part of a wider movement led by the Community Savings Bank Association to develop a UK-wide network of customer-owned, regional banks. By pursuing a different business model these banks will bring a range of social and economic benefits to the region, tackling financial exclusion and boosting local productivity.

Avon Mutual will be an ethical and sustainable alternative to the big banks and will support small local enterprises focussed on issues such as building zero carbon homes and developing sustainable food and farming for the bioregion. This will fill a hole in the UK investment landscape which is well served by community banks across Europe.

This event is being held in partnership with our Salisbury Fellows Network and will bring together key stakeholders in south Wiltshire who are interested in the development of a mission-led bank that will drive inclusive growth in the region.

Event Speaker(s)

Jules Peck - Founding Director of Avon Mutual
James Moore - Chairman, Community Savings Bank Association
Oliver Reichardt - Director of Fellowship, The RSA
