With a strong belief that together, people can create happier, healthier lives for themselves and each other, Nova Alliance Bank prides itself on being an Alliance Bank partner. This means that not only is the bank there to offer the financial products its members need with ease, simplicity and speed, it is also a participant in social change, working to create a better tomorrow for all.
Nova Alliance Bank sees itself as the bank that funds dreams, gives consumers more options and anticipates their financial needs. Is it the bank for you? Let’s take a closer look at where Nova Alliance Bank came from, what it has to offer, and why you might want to apply for a credit card from this Alliance Bank partner.
Established back in 1964 to service the financial needs of those employed by the Hunter Water Board, Nova Alliance Bank started out as Hunter Water Board Employees Credit Union. Expanding over time, it later merged with Newcastle Herald Employees Credit Union. With this foundation, it’s safe to say a co-operative philosophy has always been at the centre of everything this organisation does.
Today, the bank is still headquartered in Newcastle, but it has a new partner. Thanks to its partnership with Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, it has become Nova Alliance Bank – and an Alliance Bank partner.
You may have seen quite a few ‘Alliance Banks’. So, what exactly are they? Alliance Banks are Australia’s first wholly independent, member-owned social enterprise banks that, through the business of banking, invest their profits in initiatives that support members and seek to generate positive social outcomes within their communities.
Backed by Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, Alliance Banks such as Nova Alliance Bank can offer the financial products and services their members need, while working to effect real positive change throughout their local communities and the world. By focussing on making changes where they’re needed, these Alliance Banks work to make life better for their members, and in doing so, create a more positive tomorrow.
Bendigo and Adelaide Bank supports all Alliance Bank partners, ensuring all financial products and services offered to members are properly regulated, and abide by the rules set out by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).
Nova Alliance Bank is owned by its members. Under the principle of one member one vote, each member has a say in how the bank is run. This ensures the bank puts members first every step of the way.
Being member-owned also means there are no external shareholders expecting to take their share of the profits. Instead, profits can be re-invested to benefit members, providing lower fees, better rates and more investment in the community in which members live.
Despite being smaller in size, Nova Alliance Bank still works hard to provide members access to all the latest technology. That means offering online banking access, and giving cardholders the ability to sync their cards to Samsung Pay, Google Pay and Apple Pay.
As a social enterprise bank, Nova Alliance Bank strives to create positive social change, investing in projects and communities that benefit members directly, or the world at large.
