Global Alliance for Banking on Values | Lead Bank

Proud Member of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values

Lead Bank is pleased to announce that it has been selected to join the Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV). The GABV is an international network of banking leaders from around the world committed to advancing positive change in the banking sector. Their collective goal is to change the banking system so that it is more transparent and supports economic, social, and environmental sustainability.  At its heart, the GABV is a network providing a unique space for collaboration for leaders who are committed to values-based banking.  Lead Bank’s mission is “to be at the heart of the success of our communities,” which accords with the values and practices represented by GABV. 

Our values align perfectly with the GABV's

We enjoy being a part of a network of like-minded and socially-conscious banks that share our mission and our values to create financial opportunity for everyone.
