StockCo is now part of Heartland Bank, a digital specialist bank

Heartland Bank Australia - Stockco

02 May 2024

We’re pleased to share that StockCo is now part of Heartland Bank (previously known as Challenger Bank), a digital specialist bank in Australia.

Being part of the Heartland Bank banking group will allow us to strengthen our livestock finance offering and become more competitive for our clients.

Since 2022, StockCo has been part of the Heartland group, a financial services group with operations in Australia and New Zealand. The group includes New Zealand registered bank, Heartland Bank Limited.

On 30 April 2024, Heartland Bank in New Zealand purchased Challenger Bank. On 2 May 2024, the StockCo group of companies (together with Heartland’s other existing Australian businesses) was transferred to Heartland Bank in Australia, a digital specialist bank.

Drawing on Heartland’s expertise in New Zealand, and its successful track-record in Australia, Heartland Bank in Australia will focus on providing Australians with specialist banking products that are the best or only of their kind, through digital channels.


What does this mean for you?

Right now, nothing is changing for StockCo and there are no plans to change the StockCo brand. This won’t change the great service you receive from our dedicated team of livestock experts. We remain committed to specialist products that are the best or only of their kind, and will continue our leadership and advocacy in the sector.
