Starting 15 May 2024, AWA’s branches will now open at 10am every Wednesday as we prepare for the transition from AWA to Beyond Bank. This adjustment allows our staff to undergo essential training, ensuring continued excellence in service for our members. Thankyou for your understanding during this transition period.

Proposed changes for AWA Mutual Limited (AWA)

Merger With Beyond Bank Australia Set To Proceed

Following the meeting of AWA Shareholders on 29 January 2024, where 98.85% voted in favour of the Scheme of Arrangement, we are very pleased to announce that on 15 February 2024 final Regulatory and Court approvals were granted, enabling the merger of AWA Mutual Limited (AWA) and Beyond Bank Australia Limited (Beyond Bank) to proceed.

The merger transaction (Scheme of Arrangement) will be completed on 1 March 2024, whereby AWA will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Beyond Bank and all members of AWA will become members and shareholders of Beyond Bank. As a part of this transaction, the ownership of all AWA Alliance Bank branded deposits and loans will transfer from Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Ltd to Beyond Bank Australia Ltd.

From 1 March there will be little change for members as their current banking operations will continue as normal until such time as the AWA and Beyond systems are fully integrated which we expect to take approximately 6-8 months to complete.   At the time, members will receive communications specific to their own arrangements and our staff will be here to support members through these changes.
