Good for you ... Good for the community
Did you ever think you'd hear about a Bank that invests the majority of its profits back into the local community? Here's some information about one that does …
Wantirna Community Bank® Branch, which operates under Bendigo Bank, began with a need for a new bank in the Wantirna community after the "big banks" closed their branches in the area leaving Wantirna Mall and local Wantirna residents without a bank for 6 years.
The close community feel of the Wantirna area was the perfect place to launch a bank run with the community banking model, and that's just what happened when Wantirna Community Bank® Branch opened its doors. Since then the bank has injected more than $212,000 invested back in to the community!!
For those new to the community banking model, it is a concept unique from the other big banks. The majority of profits derived from customers that bank at our branch are invested back into the community in a range of ways. This means customers banking with the branch are investing back into their own community, into local schools, not for profit organisations, clubs, societies, youth development programs, community centres and the like.
Wantirna Community Bank® Branch offers all the necessary consumer and business products like other big banks, from day to day banking accounts, credit cards, loans, financial advice and insurance, whilst operating from a convenient location that is open Monday through to Friday. All this is supported by the strength of Bendigo & Adelaide Bank which has assets of over $52 billion under management.
As Wantirna Community Bank® Branch grows, its investment in to the community will continue to grow. You can be a part of this, and have an impact in the community, simply by taking care of your banking and financial needs at Wantirna Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank.
As a full service branch with great products and the strength of Bendigo Bank, paired with our excellent personal service and expertise, we can grow a true banking relationship with our customers. We make our customers feel welcome and valued whilst investing in our community. If you want to be a part of this, or simply want to know more, please call in to the branch at Wantirna Mall and say hello to John Tiganis, Branch Manager, at any time.
