David Marlow, chief executive of The Nottingham, said: “We have a clear purpose and strong heritage of providing our members with a safe, secure and rewarding home for their savings, and helping them put a roof over their head.
“Over the past few years, we have developed and invested in our ‘all under one roof’ proposition, offering a broader range of services, including estate agency and lettings services, whole of market mortgage advice and independent financial planning.
“While many organisations have been closing branches, we added a further seven new locations to our branch network at the end of 2017, taking our total to 67 branches across 11 counties – the fifth largest building society branch network in the UK. We are now trading on the high street in Norfolk for the first time in the society’s history.
“2017 saw us commit to a multi-million-pound investment to develop our digital capability to complement our growing physical presence. Customers and members will see the first step in this journey in 2018 as we replace our current web portals for intermediary mortgage business and online savings, making it even easier to do business with us.
“As a mutual, we are committed to supporting the local communities in which we operate. Through our Doing Good Together programme, we donated over £37,000 to 14 local charities, worked with Young Enterprise in 34 schools, volunteered 1,350 hours and reached a milestone of £50,000 raised for our long-term charity partner Framework who work to combat homelessness.”
