ME Bank for industry super fund members
ME Bank is a 100% Australian owned, APRA regulated Bank. Established by industry super funds - the same people who brought you low cost, no commission super. ME Bank was proudly built to provide a genuine banking alternative - a fairer way to bank.
The industry super fund and union movements' hard-fought principles of fairness and collective benefit are at the very heart of ME Bank's business. And because they're owned by industry super funds, their profits go back to them for their members, to help working Australians enjoy a better quality of life in retirement.
In 1994, ME Bank started by offering lower home loan rates that had previously only been available to those who could arford large loans or were able to negotiate better deals. They've stayed true to their heritage and continue to grow by giving everyday Australians, who are members of industry super funds, real service, genuine respect and competitive products.
ME Bank's products are straightforward, easy-to-understand and transparent. You know what you're getting and that you can trust them. Because there are no hidden costs and no bank jargon. In fact, they've kept their standard variable rate home loan for industry super fund members below that of the 'big four' banks for every month, every year, since they became a bank in 2001.
ME Bank offers a range of products which can be tailored to suit your needs, many with additional benefits and savings for members of industry super funds and unions. Click here for further information and to see if you're eligible.
