SCU's History

SCU was established in 1963 and the directors then wanted to start a company to protect and promote the financial wellbeing of employees of the City of Sydney Council. Borrowing funds from the banks was restrictive according to them, so they resolved to offer SCU members a new and competitive solution.

In the beginning only personal loans or lending and basic call savings were available with SCU, but today the all personal retail banking services are available to members.
