Rabobank is a full range international financial services provider which operates on the basis of cooperative principles. Its origins lie in local loan cooperatives founded in the Netherlands over 115 years ago by enterprising individuals who had no access to the capital market. Through its cooperative mission Rabobank aims to make a substantial contribution to welfare and prosperity in the Netherlands and as a Food & Agri bank to feeding the world sustainably.
Here in Ireland, although Rabobank is not legally structured as a cooperative, we adhere to the Rabobank Group cooperative ethos. This includes strong community involvement, local participation in the cooperative sector, as well as leveraging of our food and agri research for the benefit of the overall sectors.
