We work for you, not for shareholders

Our cooperative origins mean that we don’t have to answer to shareholder demands, so we can focus on you, and take a long-term view of your business.

We reinvest 100% of our deposits into Australian agribusiness, supporting the livelihood of farmers and rural communities.

"It's refreshing to be part of a bank with such strong integrity and values. As Rabobank has no shareholders, the sole priority is our clients. Our genuine and pure focus is food and agribusiness."

Wayne SaundersRabobank Branch Manager, Mildura

By farmers, for farmers

Our focus is on food and agribusiness, pure and simple. Our strength is built upon the commitment and smarts of our people. We believe in 'old fashioned' personal service and have a deep knowledge of agribusiness right across the value chain, which gives you a significant competitive advantage. And with many of our rural managers being from the land, they don’t just understand farming, they live and breathe it.

We connect people and share knowledge

All up we have 400 rural specialists in 61 branches across Australia with a wealth of local, on-farm and of course banking knowledge.

To add to this, we provide access to a host of specialists whose expertise ranges from succession planning and sustainable farm systems through to commodity price and foreign exchange risk management, along with 80 international food and agribusiness analysts; and a global network of millions of farming clients in 40 countries.

So as our client, you have a great source of knowledge to tap into. This can help you to make better business decisions, and foster new business-to-business opportunities in other countries and along the supply chain.

"I grew up on a dairy farm in Denison, so having the opportunity to open a branch and build a team in Sale, Victoria wasn’t just a ‘natural fit’ - it allowed me to return home and help support my local community."

Tony Anderson Rabobank Branch Manager, Sale

When you save with Rabobank, not only do you grow your savings, you also help Aussie farmers grow. That’s because money you deposit in your online savings accounts goes to fund Aussie farmers and help bring food to our tables. Now that’s something to feel good about.

Not only that, unlike other banks we are a cooperative, we have your best interest at heart and proud to offer honest and responsible banking to our clients and the society at large.
