CUA is the largest credit union in Australia, with almost half a million customers and assets worth $13.75 billion. CUA is owned by its customers, not shareholders.
Its origins date back to 1946 when two small credit unions opened and joined forces to offer fairer deals than the banks. Since then, there’s been a series of amalgamations and today CUA is made up of 171 credit unions.
Formerly known as Credit Union Australia, in 2007 to rebranded to just CUA.
Also known as a construction home loan, a building in course of erection (BICOE) loan loan allows you to draw down funds as a building project advances in order to pay the builders. This option is available on selected variable rate loans.
A construction loan is loan taken out for the purpose of building or substantially renovating a residential property. Under this type of loan, the funds are released in stages when certain milestones in the construction process are reached. Once the building is complete, the loan will revert to a standard principal and interest mortgage.
