The Principality is one of the largest and financially strong Building Societies (number 6 in the UK) and the leading Society in Wales, with a balance sheet more than £9bn (December 2016 £8.2bn) and over half a million members. The Society is a significant and influential business and employer in Wales, has very high consumer recognition and does a great deal to support the communities and economy of Wales.
