Our director Sado Jirde has joined the growing groups of local advisors for Avon Mutual, formed to establish the first ever customer-owned high street bank dedicated to Bristol, Bath, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and North Somerset.
The aim of this community bank is to serve the everyday financial needs of local citizens, local community groups, and small and medium sized (SME) companies. Furthermore, Avon Mutual aims to work closely with Community Development Corporations, Community Development Finance Institutions, local Social Investment Funds, Revolving Loan Funds and others in order to become a key anchor institution in shifting the region’s economy to a so-called ‘new economy’, focused on promoting sustainable and equitable prosperity for the region.
