The Aosta Valley Cooperative Credit Bank is the bank of reference for the autonomous region of Valle d'Aosta. There are banks that aim to contribute to the promotion and development of the territory in which they operate and that is why they are truly local. There are banks that have a responsibility to be enterprises, effective and efficient for its members and customers, but also a "social responsibility" to the community. The Cooperative Banks have this identity. A Cooperative Credit Bank is a banking company unique and original, a bank "for different strength." The Cooperative Banks are: Co-operative Societies: partnerships and capital, governed on the principle of one vote, the "open door, non-profit and social benefit purposes; mutual: banks of the partners that provide credit primarily to members; local interests: playing a vital role in supporting families and businesses throughout its territory; solidarity: they promote the mutual aid of members, promote economic growth, social and cultural life of their community. The Cooperative Banks are local businesses: they are born and grow thanks to the tenacity and talent of real people who decide to combine their energies, to cooperate. They are in the area: the resident on a permanent basis and will take not only the operation and all operations, but also the decision-making power: feet, head and heart. They work for the territory by the bank in a different way, emphasizing the person's attention, knowledge and proximity to real inclusion in the economic circuits of small and very small operators, but also encouraging the growth of the civil territory.

The bureaucratic procedure led to an increase in the minimum capital requirement, which came to £. 40,000,000, hence the need to renew the fund-raising, which reached the value of £. 45.28 million in 1978, a deed with a notary Chanoux Emilio di Aosta, November 12, 1978 was established the Cassa Rurale ed Artigiana di Gressan. Since, however Autonomous Region, a regional law was necessary for the final constitution of a special bank, a regional law n. 21 of 13 May 1980 completed the bureaucracy, which had yet to get clearance from the Bank of Italy, who arrived Jan. 5, 1981 with a request to increase the share capital to £. 80,000,000. Cassa Rurale ed Artigiana di Gressan began its operation January 4, 1982 with two employees. In 1987 came the Cassa Rurale ed Artigiana di Fenis - Nus - Saint-Marcel, the first pluricomunale, a characteristic that was changing times, as the rural banks were, until then, be formed in one common and could work with municipalities bordering the one in which the seat was present or any branches. Other three were born in 1991 and Artisan and rural banks in particular: the Casse Rurali and Artisan Saint-Christophe, Cassa Rurale and Artisan of Mont Blanc in the town of La Salle and the Cassa Rurale and Artisan of the Gran Paradiso in the municipality of Saint- Pierre.
