At Beyond Bank Australia, we #ChoosetoChallengene gender bias and inequality because we believe in strong communities. We are committed to supporting those who are marginalised, including women, who often do not have the opportunity for financial wellbeing.
And if you're not feeling confident about your ability to live comfortably after you've retired or in the event of losing a job, you're not alone.
Women continue to earn less than men and have fewer savings and superannuation for the future. They are more likely to work part-time and often take time out of the workforce for parenting or caregiving, forgoing income and benefits altogether.
At Beyond Bank, we are in the privileged position of being able to change the lives of our customers and their communities. We see improved financial empowerment for women as a way to address larger societal issues such as equality and justice, reproductive rights, poverty, financial abuse, income security and retirement.
But we also understand that you may not know where or how to start to improve your financial wellbeing. That's why we're working on developing a financial literacy program for marginalised groups.
We've also got tools available free of charge so that you can manage your money better, get your debts under control and start saving.
And if you're suffering financial hardship, you can talk to us about your situation and see how we can help.
And if you're one of the 42%1 of women globally who does not have access to a financial institution or a bank account, we've got you covered. Drop into a branch or contact us. We'll welcome you as a customer, help you to open an account and get you on the path towards a more financially empowered you.
