Australia’s customer owned banking sector responds to the bushfire emergency

Print

Australia’s mutual banks, credit unions and building society express our deepest sympathies to those impacted by the devastating bushfire emergency across the country and stand ready to assist customers that are impacted.

Customer Owned Banking Association CEO Michael Lawrence says that Australia’s customer owned banking institutions will work with customers to help support them as they rebuild their lives and properties.

“Australia's customer owned banking sector has a long history of supporting its customers and communities in times of need,” Mr Lawrence said.

“Customer owned banking institutions offer a range of measures to assist customers that are impacted by the bushfires, many of which continue to burn.

“If you’re impacted, please contact your banking institution once you’re able to, to find out exactly how they will be able to assist you.

“The bushfires are devastating for individuals and communities. Our thoughts are with those whose properties and lives have been impacted, as well as for the firefighters that are working to protect lives and property.”

If you are impacted by the bushfires, please contact your mutual bank, credit union or building society, who are there to help. Contact details can be found at http://www.customerownedbanking.asn.au/find-a-customer-owned-banking-institution
