Why us instead of a traditional bank?
We’re like a bank…but we’re not a bank
On a day-to-day financial level, we offer the exact same sorts of services and products as the banks you’re used to dealing with. Savings accounts, term deposits, foreign currency, insurance, business banking, credit cards, personal loans…and, of course, home loans. You’re not missing out on anything by joining Northern Inland.
Tamworth, Gunnedah, and Narrabri – that’s where our branches are, and that’s where we operate, so we’ve got a laser-like focus on the region. Our Members aren’t stuck with practices and policies that were made for Sydney and Melbourne; nor are we insulated by distance from our decisions. Northern Inland offers an almost bespoke financial service for the people of northwest NSW.
Our entire head office is just behind the branch in Peel Street, Tamworth. Unlike other financial institutions, whose support staff may be spread around the country or even overseas, we can approve things like loans quickly on-site. Being small means we can move and react quickly to Member requests and enquiries, and offer up replies from our key management staff.
We have over 40 years’ experience handling the financial needs of people of the northwest, firstly as three separate credit unions: Namoi Credit Union, Oxley Mutual Credit Union, and Tamworth Community Credit Union. Northern Inland was then born in 1988, following the merger of these three credit unions.
We’re all about you…
Private individuals are our bread-and-butter, not just a garnish. Our service and existence is due to Members like you. We’re not investing in giant construction projects in Dubai, or factories in China, or mines in Argentina. We invest in our local people and local investments in our community.
…because we are you
As we’re fond of saying: our customers are our owners, and our owners are our customers. Like any business we have to appeal to both. It’s just so much neater and easier to do that if owners and customers are one and the same: Members. And that’s the secret behind our great service and low rates. We never have to rob Peter to pay Paul. Every Northern Inland Member gets a vote at our Annual General Meeting; every Northern Inland Member has a say in how we’re run. And this ownership comes with a host of rewards in the form of our Member Loyalty Program.
Join us. Switch over to Northern Inland, and don’t just be a customer – be a Member of a credit union that’s all about you.
