Saving for your future with a mutual society is a wise decision

When you commit to saving for your medium to long-term future you’ll want to make sure that your money is invested somewhere secure and responsible, with an organisation with your best interests at heart. This is why saving with a mutual like Shepherds Friendly can offer you so much more.


When you open a Stocks and Shares ISA with us you’ll automatically become a member, and from that point you will have a voice in how our Society is run. You’re given the opportunity to express your views through feedback at our AGM, at focus groups or via our website.

Your interests and those of all of our members are at the heart of everything we do, as our mission is to uphold the Society’s core values of trust, mutual benefit and ownership.

Owned by you... run for you

The Shepherds Friendly Society runs solely for the interests of our members. It is not listed on the stock market nor is it owned externally.

We ensure that the money you invest in your Stocks and Shares ISA is treated in a responsible and sensible manner, and we aim to provide you with the best returns on your investment possible. We’ve been looking after families’ financial wellbeing since 1826, and our experience goes a long way.
