Skipton was named Best National Building Society for the sixth year running in the 2019 What Mortgage awards and Building Society of the Year in the 2018 Moneyage Mortgage Awards;

In 2019 Skipton was named for the fifth year running as one of the Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to Work For. Skipton is also Investors in People Platinum (IIP) accredited–joining the elite 2% of IIP accredited organisations in achieving platinum status;

Skipton is rated by two major credit rating agencies. Moody’s assigns a long term local and foreign currency bank deposit rating of Baa1 with a positive outlook and a short term rating of P-2. Fitch assigns the long-term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) as A- with a stable outlook and a short-term IDR rated F1.

Skipton is still based in the pretty market town whose name it shares since it was established in 1853. And as a mutual, Skipton doesn’t have shareholders to answer to. This means the Society can make decisions based on the long term best interest of the business – and that includes being a good and sustainable corporate citizen.
