Credit unions trounce majors

By webmaster

Australia’s credit unions have beaten the major banks by offering the best personal loan products, according to CANSTAR CANNEX.

Of the 43 products awarded five stars for excellence by CANNSTAR CANNEX, 40 went to credit unions, two to building societies and the remaining one was offered by a financial service company.

“You could be throwing good money away if you don’t consider a credit union for your next personal loan,” CANNSTAR CANNEX analyst Joshua Zenas said.

According to CANSTAR CANNEX, over the past year the personal debt level of the nation has increased by 5.27 per cent.

"Collectively, we owe $3.51 billion in personal loans, mainly due to debt consolidation and car purchases,” Mr Zenas said.

“Debt consolidation through personal loans has seen enormous growth – almost a 52 per cent increase, while personal finance for cars is up by nearly 20 per cent.”
