We started life in 1957 as the CSIRO Co-operative Credit Society. From there we joined with 71 other credit unions and co-operatives to become Australia’s first customer-owned bank in 2011. In 2015 we changed our name to Bank Australia.
As a customer-owned bank with B Corporation credentials, we do things a little differently to your typical bank. We put our customers at the centre of the bank, balance purpose and profit, and make decisions that have a positive impact on people, communities and the planet.
