You may have asked yourself this question a few times already: how come I make the world go round, simply because I put my money in the bank? It’s quite simple.
Through your banking, banks can give out loans to people to buy, build or renovate a home. Because of your banking, entrepreneurs are able to start up or finance their businesses and you help make their dreams come true. Because of your banking, the government is able to invest in windmill parks, new city parks, bicycle paths, child care facilities; the renovation or construction of schools and basketball courts in your neighbourhood,… and so on.
But to make all of that happen, you need a bank to connect all the actors.
