BVR - The Co-operative Banking Group at a Glance
Volksbanken and Raiffeisenbanken, with over 15 million members and approximately 30 million customers, are a pillar of German banking and a major force in the German economy.
The Group is traditionally associated with and feels a particular obligation to the whole range of small and medium-sized enterprises. It has always been the policy of the Group to promote the interests of SME members and customers, and it is actively committed to supporting them in all financial matters.
Volksbanken and Raiffeisenbanken, as comprehensive banking institutes, offer their customers an extensive range of financial services from one source. This is ensured by close co-operation with highly efficient specialised institutes within the Co-operative Banking Group, among them DZ BANK AG Deutsche Zentral-Genossenschaftsbank as central-credit institution, WGZ BANK, Bausparkasse Schwäbisch Hall, R+V-Versicherungsgruppe, Union-Investment-Gruppe and Deutsche Genossenschafts-Hypothekenbank AG.
Volksbanken and Raiffeisenbanken as independent entities are rooted in regional economic life in a unique way. Their business strengths lie in a thorough knowledge of the market and personal contact with the people in the region.
As central organization of the Co-operative Banking Group, Bundesverband der Deutschen Volksbanken und Raiffeisenbanken (BVR) functions as promotor, representative and strategy partner of its members.
