On Friday 28th August we announced our end of year financial year results. Pleasingly our figures reflect the progress of Auswide Bank and the initiatives and changes we are making.

These include:

  • The updating of our branch network through a series of new branches and refurbishments. We've also increased our staff capability to ensure these locations are delivering what customers want and can grow in the markets they operate in.
  • Technology is being improved, our website is modernised, we have a new mobile banking app and soon you'll be able to apply for a loan purely online. Our ATM's are also all new.
  • Our brand has changed and is refreshed under Auswide Bank. We have received overwhelming support for the new brand and corporate identity.
  • We're more competitive than ever. Value continues to be demonstrated with Auswide customers enjoying premium products, service and good price points.

Our growth is demonstrated by our loan approvals which grew $106 million or 4.8% during the year. This is really pleasing, considering the competitive landscape.

In a nutshell we have made progress and, with the initiatives underway and some of the investments made we will see further progress this year.

With ongoing hard work, and continued support from our customers, we plan to make an even bigger difference to the banking landscape across the next 12 months.
