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.

Our history

What began as a group of small farmer credit unions has developed into a financial services provider operating on a global scale. Interested in how it all started and how the bank has developed over the years?

Rabo kunstcollectie

Rabo Art Collection

Since 1995, Rabobank has been building up a contemporary art collection featuring both Dutch and international artists. In collaboration with the artists, key works are selected that mark a milestone in their artistic life and that tell the artist’s story. These works also reflect the development of modern Dutch art since 1950. Three storylines predominate in the collection: people, society and ideas.
