Our mission statement
HertSavers exists to help people who live and work within Hertfordshire to manage their finances by:
- providing a safe and accessible place to save money
- promoting the wise use of credit at a reasonable rate of interest
- assisting them to understand their personal budget and net worth
As the organisation develops and grows, it is our aim to provide a fully functional banking service with a comprehensive range of savings and loans products that are attractive to the people who live and work in our neighbourhood.
Local people, providing a better banking service that is tailored to meet community needs
Why we’re better
What is a credit union?
Ultimately we are a community based financial co-operative. We are owned by our members, and our profits are shared out to members in an annual dividend. For more information please download our Member Booklet 2014 (320.6kb)
Many people see us as an ethical option compared to the high street banks because all our profits are returned to our members. Unlike a bank we are not owned by private shareholders. We also have no bonuses to pay to our staff. With no shareholders and bonuses to pay we can concentrate on providing better and cheaper services to our members in the local community.
Joining the Credit Union is the best decision you could take for your money and it only costs £3 (£2 joining fee + £1 to open your savings account) to join. You can apply for a membership online here.

How we compare
We offer affordable services that compete with high street banks and other financial cooperatives. We also offer better short term loan options than pay day lenders and loan sharks. In addition to this we are as safe and secure as your high street bank. Like a bank, your savings will be covered by the FSCS and we are authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority.
