We support and promote the financial wellbeing of our members whilst offering the best service at competitive rates.
Savvi will achieve this by encouraging savings and the wise use of credit while providing a full range of innovative financial services to our members in an effective and efficient manner. The activities of Savvi will at all times be administered in accordance with sound management practices, good governance and a culture of regulatory compliance. “People helping People” will be at the heart of all of our decisions.
We’re around since the 1960s, so we really know our stuff
You might think Savvi is the new kid on the block, but far from it. Our financial expertise is built up over decades. Once upon a time we were St. Patrick’s Credit Union (ESB Staff) Ltd., serving as the credit union for ESB staff and retired staff only. We started with a small office and cashbox in the basement of ESB offices on Upper Mount Street and have gone from strength-to-strength since. In recent years, we came together with four other local credit Unions under our new name, Savvi Credit Union.
Changing our name is just one step on a journey. A journey that 22,000 members have joined us on, towards a better and fairer financial future for everyone.
Each credit union has a common bond and ours covers most of Dublin 1, 2 and 4. So if you live or work in these areas, you can join Savvi. And don’t forget, if you’re already a member of your home credit union, you can become a member of Savvi too!
Savvi is not-for-profit, which means we work for our members, not shareholders. In a nutshell that means when you take out a loan with us the interest goes back into Savvi to fund other loans. Just one of the many ways we’re on your side.
Here’s some other ways:
As a member you have a say in decisions affecting Savvi.
As a member you have shares which pay you a dividend each year.
As a member you have a connection with other members that’s unique like where you live or where you work.
Designed around your mobile world
Check your balance and make transfers & payments on the move.
Socially responsible banking
Your money remains invested in the local community.
Committed to the Community
For the last 50 years, the next 50 years and beyond.
To be honest I was blown away with how efficient the process has been. It’s only been two weeks since I filled in the application to become a member and I got confirmation today that my loan has been issued! That is an incredible timeframe and it has taken the biggest weight off my shoulders!! It has been the most pleasant experience and I am looking forward to continuing my relationship with all in Savvi in the future.
I needed a loan to buy a car soon after joining ESBI, that’s when I discovered how simple and quick the Credit Union loan process is!
Our Credit Union has been of real and practical help to many of my colleagues down through the years
Simon and the team looked after me from day one. They have also introduced EFT, online banking and I can’t wait to use the App!
Without exception, all my requests have always been processed extremely efficiently. The service Savvi provide is first class and much appreciated.
