The Customer Owned Banking Code of Practice explained

As a not-for-profit bank, we’re focused on you. We put our customers, not shareholders, first. And that’s something we’re proud of. We meet the same regulatory standards as banks and are prudent and strong financial service providers.

Working closely with the Customer Owned Banking Association, the governing body of Australian credit unions and building societies, we’ve helped develop the Customer Owned Banking Code of Practice.
