Why did you start the business?
With many in the Alex team coming from the traditional banking world, we’ve seen it all – the good, the bad and the ugly. With Alex Bank what we really wanted to do was cut the clutter that negatively impacts the customer experience – and provide a simple, fast, flexible and transparent solution to banking for Australians.
