Pronounced RAH' boh bank, our unique name is derived from two banking cooperatives that began operating in the Netherlands at the end of the 19th century:
- The Cooperative Association of Raiffeisen Banks
- The Cooperative Central Boerenleenbank (in English: Farmer's Credit Bank)
These banks merged in 1972 to form a single cooperative bank: Cooperatieve Centrale Raiffeisen Boerenleenbank BA. The Ra from Raiffeisen and Bo from Boerenleenbank were merged into the new entity Rabobank.
Our sundial logo symbolizes how Rabobank stands by customers as their needs change over time — helping them achieve their financial goals at every stage of life. The people, businesses, and communities we serve will always be at the heart of our business.
We stand by our customers over time.
