About

Founded in 1864 as Huddersfield Building Society, the company grew organically until 1975, when it became part of the largest merger between building societies to date.

In 1994 the company launched the first share-dealing service operated by a building society. Through a series of mergers and acquisitions, today the company has more than 240 high street branches all across the country.

In 2021 the Yorkshire Building Society was awarded the Moneyfacts High Street Savings Provider of the Year Award, and the Fairer Finance Gold Ribbon for Customer Service.

The company’s philosophy gravitates around three principles: helping people to have a place to call home, helping them towards greater financial well-being, and creating long-term value for members.

Services

In addition to the traditional building society services of Saving and Mortgage, the company also offers insurance.
Savings account options include easy access, fixed bonds, children, cash ISAs, and regular savers.

Mortgages are available for first-time buyers, existing customers that want to switch deals, remortgaging, and home movers.
The company offers both home and life insurance policies.
As of 1st May 2021, the Yorkshire Building Society no longer offers share-dealing services, which have been passed over to Jarvis Investment Management Ltd.
