Rabobank group is a full-range financial services provider that operates on cooperative principles. Its origins lie in the local loan cooperatives that were founded in the Netherlands about 110 years ago who had no access to the capital market. The group comprises of independent local Rabobanks plus Rabobank Nederland (sic), their umbrella organisation, and a number of specialist subsidiaries. It has about 60,000 employees who serve about 1-crore customers in 47 countries.

The local Rabobanks and their clients form the group's core cooperative business. The banks are members and shareholders of the supralocal cooperative organisation, Rabobank Nederland, which advises the banks and supports their local services. Rabobank Nederland also supervises, on behalf of the Dutch central bank, the solvency, liquidity and administrative organisation of the local Rabobanks. Rabobank Nederland further acts as a (international) wholesale bank and as a bankers' bank to the group and is the holding company of a large number of specialised subsidiaries.
