About Us

Heritage is Australia's largest customer-owned bank.  With a history going back to 1875, we've always been in the business of helping Australians realise their financial dreams and enrich their lives.

What's the difference between a bank and a customer-owned bank?  We're independent - owned by our customers, not shareholders.  So instead of pursuing massive profits, our focus is on putting People first.
