Saffron Building Society is a mutual society which has been serving the local community since 1849

About us

We pride ourselves on being a mutual organisation, which means we're owned by you, our members, and exist solely for your benefit. We have a number of branches located in Hertfordshire, Essex and Suffolk.

Here you’ll find out about our commitments to our customers, to the community and to being a mutual, as well as our wide range of services. If you want to know about the Society's management structure or current financial position you can meet the senior management team and view our latest financial reports.

We offer a variety of mortgage products to meet a range of individual needs and we also assist with remortgages and further advances. We offer a range of savings and investment products including cash ISA's, notice accounts, immediate access and children's savings.

If there is anything you feel isn't covered then please get in touch and we'll be happy to help.


GENUINE. Our business is built on two things – trust and serving our Members, not shareholders.

APPROACHABLE. We are friendly and proud of our place in Members’ communities.

STRAIGHTFORWARD. We always communicate clearly and offer uncomplicated products and services.

CONSISTENT. Our Members depend on us for competitive, good quality products and services that meet their needs and reward their loyalty.

PROACTIVE. By anticipating future developments and Member needs, we not only future-proof our business, but can take action to minimise negative consequences, seize opportunities and improve our Members’ experience.
