Bank Coop was founded in 1927 as a cooperative society by the Swiss Confederation of Trade Unions (SGB) and the Federation of Swiss Consumer Associations (later to become Coop Switzerland), under the name of Cooperative Central Bank. In 1970 the bank's legal form was changed to a limited company. In 1995 the bank's name is changed to Coop Bank.
In December 1999 Basler Kantonalbank (Basler Kantonalbank is a state bank owned by the canton of Basel City) acquires the majority of Coop Bank shares. The objective of this takeover is the close cooperation of two equivalent partners. COOP maintains a holding of around 10%; the trade unions, of around 5%. COOP emphasizes its close links with Coop Bank in the future, too. In September 2000 the bank presents its future strategy under the new style of Bank Coop.
Bank Coop is a joint stock company pursuant to the law of Switzerland.

Money laundering law
Switzerland has comprehensive legislation for the banking sector concerning identifying customers and combating money laundering. We identify all contracting parties (natural persons) who have an account, a custody account portfolio or safe-deposit box with the Bank by means of an official document of identification containing a passport photo.
All legal entities that are customers of Bank Coop are identified by means of an extract from an official register. The surname, forename, residential address, nationality and date of birth of the beneficial owner will be recorded according to the current rules if the client is not the same as the beneficial owner, as is particularly the case with legal relations with trustees and non-trading organizations.
All transactions commissioned by Bank Coop from other banks are recorded in our books. There are no orders from third parties in the name of Bank Coop that are not shown in our accounts. Bank Coop regularly checks its customer base for, among other things, any coincidence with sought terrorists. We immediately notify the authorities responsible and block the assets if Bank Coop finds that the two coincide.
The auditors required under banking law further check observance of the rules for identifying customers and combating money laundering. They make an annual report to the EBK. The auditors required under banking law are subject in their turn to quality control from the EBK.
