About Golden Valley Bank

Our Commitment to you: to exceed your expectations

As a GVB customer, you should expect nothing less than the best possible service every time you deal with one of our representatives in person, by letter, on the telephone or when doing your banking electronically through our automated banking machines or Online Banking.

Our aim is to build a long-term relationship with you. The foundation of this relationship is our Service Commitment - to anticipate and exceed your expectations. Our Service Commitment sets out the standards that our customers can expect from GVB and that we demand of ourselves.

Everyone At GVB is accountable to you, our customer

From the Customer Service Representative to the Chief Executive Officer - everyone at GVB is accountable for our Service Commitment.

A simple beginning: talk openly with you

Whenever you do business at GVB, you can expect us to be open and forthcoming. This applies to our written documents as well - we're working to put some of our documents in plain language, to make them easier for you to read and understand.

Candid explanations of our service fees

We'll explain the rates, terms and conditions relating to our products and services clearly, including any fees or sales commissions that may apply to you. We'll also alert you that certain investments may carry greater risks. If, for some reason, we cannot provide a product or service, we'll explain why and suggest alternatives.

Our service fees are based on three principles:

  1. They should be simple to understand
  2. They should reflect our commitment to deliver options and value
  3. They should provide you with choices to reduce or even eliminate certain fees
Your privacy is protected

An important part of the GVB Service Commitment is your right to privacy. Even as we expand our products and services and the technology we use to provide them, keeping your information and financial affairs confidential is fundamental to the way we do business.

Voluntary codes of conduct and public commitments

Voluntary codes of conduct are guidelines and commitments that are designed to protect you, our customers. GVB has voluntarily adopted a number of codes.
