The way some financial institutions treat their customers, you could be forgiven for thinking they don’t want their business. At CUA, our service is personal. We listen. Our customers are at the centre of everything we do and they have a say in our future.
CUA is Australia’s leading customer-owned alternative to the banks. We are 100% Australian owned by our customers, not external shareholders. Our products are designed to support customers’ lifestyles – not to line shareholders’ pockets.
Unlike banks, we reinvest our profits into better value products and services. We don’t have external financial shareholders that also need their share of profits.
We like to shake things up and give the big banks a run for their money.
At CUA we are passionate about change: changing the lives of our customers, their families and their communities for the better.
