ING changed the way Australians bank more than 24 years ago by launching the country’s first branchless bank. ING now offers Australians home loans, transactional banking, superannuation, credit cards, personal lending, insurance and wholesale banking services. ING is Australia’s most recommended bank according to RFI Global’s XPRT Survey, April 2023 – September 2023 (n = 31,961) when compared to customers of 20 other banks operating in Australia. It is also Australia’s fifth largest main financial institution (MFI) with 6% of market share according to RFI Global’s XPRT Survey, April 2023 – September 2023 (n = 31,796). MFI is defined as the bank that the consumer says is their main financial institution.
