Customer Owned Banking

Banking that puts People first

Heritage is one of Australia's largest customer owned banks. With a history going back to 1875, we've always been in the business of helping Australians realise their financial dreams. What's the difference between a bank and a customer owned bank? We're independent - owned by our customers, not shareholders. So instead of pursuing massive profits, our focus is on putting People first.

We're part of a movement that began in Australia over 150 years ago, when groups of like-minded workers and communities came together to create building societies, credit unions and mutual banks. Since then, customer owned banking has grown to serve over 4 million Australians in every state and territory. 

The challenges we face together may change over time, but our award-winning customer service, competitive products and ingenuity will always be there to support you.
