About Us

Since June 2014, Rural Finance has been a part of the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group, operating alongside Rural Bank, another member of the Group and the only 100% Australian owned dedicated agricultural bank.

We are driven by a common passion and a shared vision to provide specialist financial services, knowledge and leadership for Australian farmers to grow.

In the same way that Rural Finance was founded to foster the growth of rural and regional Victoria, Rural Bank was established to deliver much needed specialist banking services to rural and regional Australia. This was at a time when key banking services were being removed by the major banks.

Rural Bank proudly remains the only Australian-owned and operated dedicated agribusiness bank in the country.

As of 25 November 2017, the Rural Finance brand has changed to Rural Bank for most customers. Rural Finance will continue to provide government services and programs on behalf of the Victorian Government.

The Rural Finance heritage and contribution to agriculture will live on in Rural Bank – as one specialist agricultural bank, we will continue to support the growth of farming communities across Australia.
