ME Bank is a 100% Australian owned, APRA regulated Bank. Established by industry super funds - the same people who brought you low cost, no commission super. We were proudly built to provide a genuine banking alternative - a fairer way to bank.
What does this mean? We're fighting the injustices of the major banks because we believe that everyone deserves a fairer deal. We always have and we always will - it's in our blood.
The industry super fund and union movements' hard-fought principles of fairness and collective benefit are at the very heart of our business. And because we're owned by industry super funds, our profits go back to them for their members, to assist in achieving a better quality of life for you in your retirement.
The fact is, the reason we were built is different, so our priorities are different - and that changes everything.
In 1994 we started by offering lower home loan rates that had previously only been available to those who could afford large loans or were able to negotiate better deals. We've stayed true to our heritage and continue to grow by giving everyday Australians, who are members of industry super funds, unions and employer associations, real service, genuine respect and competitive products.
These are the things that are in our DNA. Our commitment to being fairer is genuine.
ME Bank's products are straightforward, easy-to-understand and transparent. You know what you're getting and that you can trust us. Because there are no hidden costs and no bank jargon. In fact, we've kept our standard variable rate home loan for industry super fund and union members below that of the 'big four' banks for every month, of every year, since we became a bank in 2001.
We respect each and every one of our customers. Regardless of how much you earn or where you live, we treat our customers with care and understanding. Because we appreciate the importance of your time, we'll visit you at home or at work. And if you phone us, you'll talk to a real person right here in Australia who'll take the time to talk to you until your query is answered.
This is what it means to bank with a genuinely different kind of bank.
