Customer Focus & Cooperative History


Founded by Farmers for Farmers

Rabobank was founded over 115 years ago by farmers as a small cooperative of banks serving their rural communities. The cooperative model was designed to provide a fair and reliable source of credit to local customers through a system of shared liabilities, pooled resources, and reservation of profits.

Rabobank expanded its business scope and geographic presence throughout the 20th century, adding a broader range of banking and financial services to meet the needs of its customers in the Netherlands and internationally.

Even as the bank grew into one of the world's largest financial institutions, the Rabobank Group has remained a cooperative organization — operating on the same principles, and dedicated to serving our customers and their communities.

Strength and Security

Rabo AgriFinance is fully backed by the strength and stability of our parent company, the Rabobank Group — a global financial leader for over 115 years, and ranked one of the world's safest banks by Global Finance magazine. As a member of the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Rabobank is a strong, stable financial bank.

A Single Focus: Our Customers

The Rabobank Group is built on the foundation of our cooperative model. So we have one focus: meeting the needs of customers. As a self-owned organization rather than a publicly traded company, our mission is to create value for customers. Instead of distributing profits and dividends to shareholders, we invest profits back into local businesses and communities — everywhere we do business.

As a bank founded by customers for customers, Rabobank's mission remains as strong today as it was 115 years ago.
