Where we started
We began back in 1974, to improve the financial wellbeing of Victoria Police members and their families. More than forty years on and our services now extend to members of the health, emergency and public services sectors.
Where we are
We are Victorian based, just like our members who have now grown to over 117,000 members. While we are big enough to matter, with $2.6 billion in assets, we are still small enough to care about the financial wellbeing of each and every one of our members.
Why we’re here
BankVic exists to strengthen the communities which we serve. We aim to build healthy communities that are financially, socially and environmentally sustainable. It's these beliefs that drive our work and underpin our certification as a B Corp.
