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.
