Who is Rural Bank?

Rural Bank is wholly owned by the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group, Australia’s leading community banking group.

Rural Bank was founded with the specific purpose of providing banking services to rural and regional Australia at a time when these services were being withdrawn by major banks. This commitment has not changed and we continue to operate entirely within Australia with a focus on the provision of banking services to the agribusiness community.

We are proud of the fact that money deposited with us is reinvested into country Australia in the form of loans to Australian primary producers. When you choose Rural Bank, you can be confident that you are supporting local communities and country Australia while being backed by the security of a successful, well-managed financial institution.
