From the Collaborative Bond and Money Market Data Portal
The Bank-Building Society, or Building Society industry consists of financial institutions owned by its members and focuses on savings deposits and lending its deposits for mortgages. Building Societies exist in the United Kingdom and in Australia. They are similar to Credit Unions and Cooperative Banks.
The Industry Sector is a classification that describes the activity of an entity within the economy. The classification is based on where the relevant entity derives the majority of its revenue.

CMDportal uses industry sector classifications both at the Legal Entity level, as well as at the Group level. At the Legal Entity level the entity is classified by their actual industry activity. Accordingly, we classify an issuer of Asset Backed Securities that is part of a building society as an ABS type issuer at the entity level but at the group level as for example a "Bank – Building Society.”
