What is the future of mutuals now?

Professor Daniel Hodson

Daniel Hodson, former Gresham Professor of Commerce with Anthony Hilton, Financial Editor, London Evening Standard and Philip Williamson, Chief Executive, Nationwide Building Society. Why did mutuals occur and what purposes did/do they serve? Some of Britain's greatest financial institutions have been mutuals, especially in the life insurance and building society spheres. In the past 15 years many of these have experienced problems which have caused them to wither, be absorbed or to get into serious financial/legal/reputational difficulties; many others have demutualised. A third group are successful, thriving enterprises, serving the needs of their members. * What are the peculiar risks and opportunities associated with mutuality? * Is size an issue? * Does mutual status require a different company ethos and culture? * What future do mutuals have?
