The total factor productivity and technical change within the UK building society sector are examined in this paper. Total factor productivity growth is measured using a cost function shift approach. An intermediation model of bank production with a translog specification of productive technology is employed. Static total factor productivity growth is observed over the sample period. Very Low levels of technical change are found.
