Bendigo Bank was named the third most trusted Australian brand this week, ahead of Bunnings, Qantas and the ABC, according to independent research by Roy Morgan.

Bendigo Bank’s Chief Engagement Officer, Andrew Twaits said the Bank’s high trust rating was underpinned by its unique mix of capability, character and conscience.

"While our capabilities continue to evolve to deliver industry-leading solutions and experiences to our customers, the way we treat our customers hasn’t really changed in 160 years.
