Investing in Australia
Rural Bank is here to back Australians and Australian communities. The money you deposit with us we re-invest back into rural Australia. We also support the Australian agribusiness community through a countrywide program of community involvement, including giving support to local causes through our regional banking partners.
Founded to back rural Australia
Rural Bank was founded, under a banking licence granted in 2000, to provide specialist banking services to rural and regional Australia at a time when these services were being withdrawn by major banks. Rural Bank is still filling the growing gap as other banks continue to consolidate services or move out of regional Australia completely.
Partnering with established local experts
Rural Bank has partnered with some of Australia’s best-known organisations to provide specialist banking solutions in our communities and on your farm. Through these local experts, we deliver personalised service and unparalleled choice and access for the rural community.
