We're a savings specialist 

We're passionate about helping you achieve your savings goals, whether it's a short or long term goal. 

We’re part of a co-operative bank, which means we're not accountable to the stock market so we can offer honest banking and more value to our customers.

We're straight talking

We won’t wrap things up in financial or legal jargon and if we change anything, including our rates we’ll always tell you.

We're competitive

We’re only online, so we have fewer overheads, which means we can offer competitive rates and won’t charge you account keeping fees.


We're human

Our Customer Service Centre is operated by real people, based in Sydney, Australia.

Like to look around before you ask for help? We also have an online Help Centre to answer your questions.


We're awarded

Saving is our thing and we like to think we do it really well. It’s even better to know that industry bodies like Smart Investor think so too.


Your money's safe here

We're committed to keeping your money and identity secure:

  • We protect you with a security device called a Digipass that gives you strong online security.
  • Eligible deposits with a balance up to $250,000 are guaranteed by the Australian Government's Financial Claims Scheme.

Your money stays in Australia

Deposits raised through RaboDirect are reinvested into local farmers and agribusiness, so your savings are helping our farming sector grow. Food and agri-business is one of the most important business sectors in Australia, employing thousands of people and significantly contributing to Australia's Gross Domestic Products.

Rabobank Australia Limited is one of Australia's leading agri-business lenders.

Financial Claims Scheme

From February 1 2012, the Financial Claims Scheme applies to eligible deposits with a balance up to $250,000 per account holder, per authorised deposit-taking institution. This $250,000 cap is combined and therefore is applicable to the aggregate of all deposit account balances held by one person across both RaboDirect and Rabobank deposits including:
