About the West Brom

The West Brom is the leading regional building society in the Black Country and Birmingham, and the 7th largest in the UK with some 446,000 members.

The Society is a major provider of financial products and services, notably savings and prime residential mortgages.

The Society has an extensive network of branches across the Black Country and Birmingham, as well as having an important presence in mid-Wales and Shropshire.

The Society was formed as a mutual organisation – owned and run for the benefit of its members – on St George’s Day in 1849 by 20 local citizens with the aim of helping people to better themselves through savings and the security of owning their own homes.

The Society remains proudly committed to this principle of mutuality. This also means contributing to the communities we serve, including supporting charities that do so much to help those in genuine need, such as the Society’s chosen charity.
