New campaign encourages Australians to ‘Own Your Banking’


A new campaign is encouraging Australians to ’Own Your Banking’ and to look at the benefits of customer owned banking.

The Customer Owned Banking Association launched the campaign today following increased interest and demand from customers for banking they can trust. 

“Own Your Banking is a direct response to our members telling us they’ve seen an uptick in customer interest and enquiries because people are shocked by stories they’ve been hearing in the Royal Commission,” COBA CEO Michael Lawrence said.

“Our model is the only alternative that can claim it is solely customer focused because 100% of profits are used to benefit customers. This is what we’re communicating through the ‘Own your Banking’ campaign.

“4 million Australians already own their banking – they are customers of mutual banks, credit unions and building societies across Australia.

“We hope ‘Own Your Banking’ will let consumers know there are plenty of alternatives in the Australian banking market that can be trusted to put them first.

“There are more than 70 mutual banks, credit unions and building societies located across Australia. We are market leaders in customer satisfaction and offer award winning home loans and low rate credit cards.

“We encourage consumers to take a look at our campaign and learn more about how to Own Your Banking.”
