About Kingston Unity
Long-Term Saving With a Difference
We’re totally different to banks because we’re owned by our Members. We’re run for the benefit of you and your family, not for shareholder profit. Our offices are based in Yorkshire, but we have Members throughout the UK. We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of Members to secure their financial futures with a range of tax-efficient savings and investment options. We’ve been helping since 1840 and we’ve always invested exclusively for our Members.
We’re friends for life…
Over 100,000 Members making the most of their savings
The way people save has changed, but our commitment to your savings hasn’t. We are very proud of our heritage and mutual status. We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of Members, their children and grandchildren, to make more of their money with tax-efficient savings and investment products. Our vision is to develop a modern Friendly Society that caters for and secures the financial futures of our Members and their families through the communication of our Member first values ensuring that our Members are stronger as a group and have access to the benefits that the Society can provide them when they need it the most.
We’re run for you
As a Friendly Society, we’re owned by our Members. Everyone that opens a product with us automatically becomes a Member. With no shareholders to pay dividends to, our surplus profits are shared by our Members.
We’ve been looking after our Members’ money for over 178 years. We’re a Member of the Association of Financial Mutuals (AFM) and your money is protected by the FSCS. Many of our products come with money back guarantees for added peace of mind.
Our products invest in our expertly-managed With Profits fund, where Members gain a fair share in the fund’s returns. This is distributed as a bonus and once added to the account, can’t be removed.
