But what really makes Rabobank stand out from other banks? We don’t have shareholders, but members. This means we do not have to divide our profits with shareholders. Instead, our members help us decide how and where to invest part of our profits back into society. We call this the “cooperative dividend,” which we use to support national and international projects that would otherwise not get off the ground.
