2021 AGM - Questions and answers

Your staff in Barrow are redirecting FBS members to other establishments, so FBS staff don’t have to handle money. However banks and other building societies are able to offer this service, why?

Why use pale and small text in places?

Why does the CEO earn more than the Prime Minister and are the NED fees excessive?

Why does the design concept of the members review include so many positive images? – seems out of touch with current circumstances.

Will you issue a loyalty bond and not put all the services online as some older customers do not like using technology.

Will you issue a loyalty bond and not put all the services online as some older customers do not like using technology. Is there an action plan to improve diversity on the Board?

Are FBS Directors and staff included on the Board of Trustees? (and if so who are they?)

Please clarify the measures that the Board is taking to check that the newly appointed Entrust perform satisfactorily?

Members Review page 20 - Market Environment. The Review notes the prospect that base rates may become negative. What would be the consequences for FBS Savings?

Is there any possibility that FBS savings rates will become negative?
