Skipton Building Society
Skipton is the UK's fourth largest building society, and was established in 1853. It is a mutual, meaning that its members (account holders) own it, rather than private investors.
As well as its traditional savings and loan business, the Skipton Group also owns the Connells estate agency chain. Skipton Building Society does not offer a current account.
It has above average customer satisfaction scores, and these are enough to pull it up into the top tier of saving providers, meaning that it holds a Gold Fairer Finance Ribbon for savings and mortgages.
