We know it takes a different kind of person to be a teacher. That’s why you deserve a different kind of bank. A bank that works as hard as you do.

Teachers Mutual Bank is the only Australian bank built and owned by teachers. For more than 50 years we’ve provided flexible products and services created for teachers.

Because we’re a mutual bank our profits go back to our Members. That means more competitive value for you. It means we can reward Members with free access to helpful online resource hubs, including our wellness and resilience platform. And it means we can support the teaching community with scholarships, mentorships, and other initiatives.

We know there’s more to teachers than teaching. And that’s why we do more for you than other banks.
