Rise in trust for customer owned banking

26 Jun 2018

Credit Union SA today welcomed new research that supports a movement towards credible, strong and viable alternatives to the major banks, such as customer owned banking institutions.

An Essential Media poll has found almost half of all Australians have less trust in the big banks because of the Royal Commission into banking.

At the same time, trust in customer owned banking institutions is on the rise.

The poll found that because of the Royal Commission into banking: 

  • 47% have less trust in big 4 banks
  • 18% have more trust in Credit Unions 
  • 17% have more trust in Mutual Banks
  • 15% have more trust in Building Societies
