Ing anniversary customer growth content

Just as it celebrates 20 years in Australia, a new report released by ING today, shows that the online bank has more than a two decade milestone to shout about. The report revealed that the bank took on a record 423,000 new customers in 2019 alone, making up a total of 2.6 million across the whole of Australia!

The bank revealed that it saw a 9.7% rise in profits from 2018 to 2019 and a 30% rise in the number of Aussies using ING as their main bank. 

Mozo’s banking expert Peter Marshall commented, “As a frequent winner of the Mozo Experts Choice Award over the past six years, it’s no surprise to see ING continuing to successfully grow its customer base in Australia.”

In fact, this year ING was awarded four Mozo Experts Choice Awards in the Bank and Savings Accounts category. These awards are conducted year on year by Mozo’s team of data experts, to figure out which Australian banking products really do live up to their fancy advertising campaigns.
