Building societies ranked by group assets in the United Kingdom (UK) 2018

Building societies, unlike banks are not listed on the stock market and thus, don't have external shareholders. Instead, the "owners" and decision makers of building societies are mortgage borrowers, savers and current account holders. Building societies offer many traditional banking products and financial services such as mortgage lending, savings and current accounts.

Nationwide is the largest building society in the United Kingdom (UK) with group assets worth approximately 238.3 billion British pounds in 2018. In the same year, it also ranked as the second biggest mortgage lender in the country, with 13 percent of the gross mortgage lending.
