Nationwide is the world’s largest building society, as well as the second largest savings provider and a top-three provider of mortgages in the U.K. With some 15 million customers Nationwide has positioned itself as a real and credible alternative to the established banks. Unlike some of its competitors, Nationwide successfully weathered the banking crisis and economic downturn with its reputation intact and emerged in a strong position to meet the challenges facing financial institutions in the years ahead.
