About Us

Australia’s first SME-focused challenger bank!

At Judo Bank, we’re bringing back the craft of relationship banking to transform banking for Australia’s small and medium-sized businesses. Built from the ground up by a small group of deeply experienced and highly credentialed business banking professionals, Judo Bank is providing a genuine alternative for SMEs to secure the funding they need and the service they deserve.

Our values:

Accountability - Say what you’re going to do. Then do what you say you’re going to do.

Performance - Continuously improve. Increase your capabilities. Be a constant learner.

Teamwork - Sum of whole is greater than its parts. Commitment to synergistic behaviours that value Judo success over individual performance.

Trust - Be real and genuine. Tell the truth. Let people know where you stand. Use simple language. Call things what they are. Demonstrate integrity.

Underpinning our four core values is Judo Bank’s 100% commitment to the Banking and Finance Oath. The Banking and Finance Oath is an effort to re-assert the ethical foundation of the banking and finance industry beyond regulation and compliance, by broadening expectations and discussion to include ethics, integrity, honesty and trust.

We believe adhering to these ethics, combined with our Judo Bank values, will create brighter outcomes for our customers and the communities they serve. This is why each member of our team personally signs The Oath when joining Judo Bank.
