2016 marked the first full year of Auswide Bank as we know it, and what a big year it was! As the year comes to an end, we're taking a stroll down memory lane to reminisce on the year that was.
At the beginning of the year we launched the Auswide Bank Scholarship in partnership with CQ University. The initiative means each year, four Bundaberg business students will benefit from the $5,000 scholarship.
In April we celebrated half a century of providing banking and financial services to our communities. April also marked the one year anniversary of the rebrand to Auswide Bank.
For Auswide Bank's first brand TV campaign we told a little story with a very big heart. The Big-Hearted Bank is a story of transformation and one that resonated with staff and customers alike. Rewatch the ad here.
In a milestone occasion in July, we launched our lowest Home Loan interest rate in over 50 years. Fixed for three years, the rate included all of the big difference features that Auswide Bank customers know and love, including additional payments and online redraw.
This year we celebrated the merger of Auswide Bank and Your Credit Union. The merger saw YCU rebrand to Auswide Bank and Auswide Bank's brand footprint increase in the Brisbane CBD.
On behalf of the team at Auswide Bank, we'd like to thank you all for your support in 2016. We look forward to helping you achieve your financial goals in 2017 and many years to come.
