Governance

Governance

We’re accountable to you, our customers. After all, every person becomes a part owner of Bank Australia when they become a customer. That’s why we put customer well-being at the centre of our decision making.

We do more than just tick all the compliance boxes  

Yes, we’re registered with ASIC and regulated by APRA. Yes, we hold all the requisite licences for running a bank. And, yes, just like all other banks in Australia, we’re covered by the Australian Government’s guarantee on deposits. 

But we’re about much more than all that. When it comes to good governance – which means the systems, processes and policies that shape our day-to-day operations, we’re serious about being both a good bank and a force for good.
