About de Volksbank

De Volksbank is the parent company of SNS, ASN Bank, RegioBank and BLG Wonen. As a bank with over 3 million customers, we want to distinguish ourselves through our social impact. And in doing so, banking is about more than just money. It is a way of being of value. Not only for our own organization and employees, our customers or our shareholder. But for society as a whole. In many places in the Netherlands, all year round. Together we invest in a better Netherlands. Our customers notice this every day. It is not for nothing that ASN Bank, RegioBank and SNS were voted the three most customer-friendly banks in the Netherlands in 2023. A great result of which we are proud. It just goes to show that a strong relationship with customers and the desire to make a difference to society go hand in hand. Banking matters are ultimately people matters. And that is exactly what we and all our colleagues at Volksbank continue to work hard on: banking on a human scale. Below you can read how we do that.

Highest scores in Fair Bank Guide

The Eerlijke Bankwijzer (Fair Bank Guide) announced in May 2023 that de Volksbank and its brands SNS, ASN Bank, RegioBank and BLG Wonen again have the highest green scores of all banks in the Netherlands. The Eerlijke Bankwijzer (Fair Bank Guide) is an independent benchmark that shows how sustainable banks are. The study consists of an assessment on the themes of taxes, animal welfare, gender equality, climate change, human rights, nature and weapons. Volksbank scored highest on all themes.

Most customer-friendly bank: 1st, 2nd and 3rd place

The most customer-friendly bank. You don’t become one overnight. For that you need sincere attention. For all your customers. Day in, day out. Despite their own unique profile, ASN Bank, RegioBank and SNS have this in common. And that is seen. Because for the second year in a row, we have been voted number 1, 2 and 3 in the independent election of the most customer-friendly bank in the Netherlands. Something we are enormously proud of.

Our strategy: from promise to impact

In 2025, we want to be the bank with the strongest customer relationship and the greatest, proven social impact. In everything we do, we ask ourselves: how will Dutch society benefit? Indeed, as a whole. Because it is precisely as a bank, with all our employees, four banking brands, our customers and everyone around us, that we can play a pioneering role.

Connected to society for more than 200 years

Making an impact. We’ve been doing that since we emerged from regional savings banks 200 years ago. To take good care of Dutch people’s money. That social origin, rooted in the local community, is our strength. As is involvement in and connection with society – and with each other. Today we focus on consumers, independent entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized businesses. We do so primarily in the areas of payments, savings and mortgages.

Note: de Volksbank is a Dutch bank and therefore, unfortunately, we can only hire Dutch-speaking students for internships or graduate studies. 

Van Oers, de ondernemer die voorop loopt!

Vanaf het allereerste begin was onze filosofie ‘daadkrachtige dienstverlening gekoppeld aan een open persoonlijkheid’, zo omschreef oprichter Harrie van Oers het. Daar staan we nog steeds om bekend, ook nu we met ruim 480 medewerkers behoren tot de grotere regionale accountants- en belastingadvieskantoren van Nederland.

Van Oers kent zo’n twintig specialismen, die samenwerken als één team.

Samen met ondernemers bouwen we aan solide organisaties die een voorbeeld willen zijn in hun branche en voor de samenleving.

De vier kernwaarden die ons maken tot wie we zijn

We doen veel meer dan gewoon goed werk afleveren. We gaan voor de hoogste kwaliteit én tonen lef en daadkracht. Zo blijven we innoveren. Wij lopen voorop, zodat we onze klanten het vertrouwen kunnen geven om vooruit te kijken en de kennis om slimme keuzes te maken. Zo gidst de Van Oers-mentaliteit onze klanten ver voor de massa uit.

We werken met mensen, collega’s en ondernemers. Daar zijn we ons altijd bewust van. Wat er bij iemand speelt, is iets waarmee je rekening wilt houden. Want mensen bepalen het succes. Als je het zo bekijkt, zitten we helemaal niet ‘in de cijfers’. Bij Van Oers bouwen we aan duurzame relaties. Onderling en met klanten.

Wie voorop wil blijven lopen, moet ruimte hebben om te groeien. Daarom geven we die aan elkaar. Zodat iedereen voelt: ik mag hier lef tonen, leren, ontwikkelen. Daar horen fouten bij. Dat geldt voor de ondernemers met wie we werken en net zo goed voor onszelf. Het mag, die ruimte is er. Voor iedereen.

We zeggen wat we doen en doen wat we zeggen. We communiceren helder en eerlijk, hoog van de toren blazen doen we niet. Gewoon doen zegt ook iets over onze werkwijze: we zijn pragmatisch. We zetten samen met collega’s, partners en klanten de schouders eronder. Laat die resultaten maar voor zich spreken.
