50 years and still going strong
A lot’s changed since we opened in 1966, but our commitment to supporting the Australian education sector remains stronger than ever.
We’re turning 50. Celebrate with us with a range of special offers over the coming weeks.
In 1966, nine teachers dreamed of a mutual financial organisation that understood and met the needs of teachers.
Today, that dream is Teachers Mutual Bank.
We may be turning 50, but our values are still the same.
We’re still as competitive as ever, with a range of quality financial products and services to benefit you and your family.
Over the years we’ve achieved some memorable milestones and been recognised with a range of awards that reflect our commitment to members and to being the best bank, one that’s socially responsible and ethical.
We’re proud of what we’ve achieved and look forward to the future supporting you and your family to achieve your dreams.
Teachers Mutual Bank. Not just any bank. Your bank.
