Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV)

Vancity is proud to be a part of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV). This world-wide movement of committed co-operatives is shifting the financial conversation. We're encouraging more people to support values-based banking and more financial institutions to adopt triple bottom lines.

Together we're creating global change

Vancity is one of 45 financial institutions and seven strategic partners operating in countries across Asia, Africa, Australia, Latin America, North America and Europe. Collectively we serve more than 41 million customers, hold up to $127 billion USD of combined assets under management, and we are supported by more than 48,000 co-workers. Together, we strengthen our commitment and ability to create sustainable, vibrant communities that put people before profit. At Vancity and together with the members of the GABV we are changing finance to finance change. Marcos Eguiguren , Executive Director at the GABV shares his dream that one day all financial institutions will become values-based organizations.
