Small Australian Mutuals Network

What We Do

Providing Industry Support for Small and Medium Sized Mutual ADIs.

The Small Australian (SAM) Network is a collective of smaller customer-owned banking organisations, working together to provide alternative banking solutions. By sharing ideas, services, solutions and opportunities, smaller customer-owned banking organisations can improve their competitiveness and provide better banking options to their members.

Overseen by an Executive Group drawn from its member organisations, the SAM Network has in-depth knowledge and experience with industry issues. Together we can solve the issues that our member organisations face.

SAM Network aims to strengthen the voice of smaller customer-owned banking organisations.  Its objectives are to:

  • improve collaboration and identify shared opportunities;
  • strengthen the capacity of smaller mutuals through advocacy;
  • provide a forum for sharing information; and
  • encourage mentoring, professional development and innovation.
