Gateway Bank wins Australia’s Best Small Mutual Bank award

Gateway Bank wins australia's best small mutual bank

Over the years, we’ve seen a rise in mutual banks as an alternative to big banks. And now Gateway Bank has been recognised as one of the best choices, winning the Best Small Mutual Bank award.

This year, our panel of expert judges assessed and analysed 90 banking providers to determine who is the cream of the crop, offering the most outstanding value across a wide range of products. The best were crowned the 2022 Mozo Experts Choice Best Banking Award winners.

“Gateway Bank was outstanding over the last year, with awards for home loans, personal loans, savings accounts and term deposits, making them an obvious choice as one of the winners in these awards,” Mozo’s banking expert and awards judge Peter Marshall said.

“While others in our ‘Small Mutual’ category won several awards, they did not have the breadth and consistency achieved by Gateway Bank.”
