2021 Impact report

This past financial year has been a year of exceptional growth and positive impact. Despite the uncertainty and evolving challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, this was a year of highlights and milestones for everyone here at Bank Australia and our customers.

We exist as a bank because we share a belief with our customers that money can be used to create a world where people and the planet thrive. This report tells the story of how we worked to achieve the best possible outcomes for our customers and remained true to purpose during the 2021 financial year.
