About the European Association of Co-operative Banks (EACB)
The European Association of Co-operative Banks (EACB) has been the voice of co-operative banks since 1970. It represents, promotes and defends the common interests of its 28 member institutions and of co-operative banks in general. Co-operative banks form decentralized networks which are subject to banking as well as co-operative legislation. With 3,135 locally operating banks and 58,000 outlets, co-operative banks play a major role in the financial and economic system. They serve more than 209 million customers, SMES and communities. Europe's co-operative banks represent 80.5 million members and 732,000 employees and have an average market share of about 20%.
The EACB is a European non-profit association, located and registered in Belgium. It is headed by a President and regulated by the Board and the Executive Committee.
