Our Values

Our Judo Bank Values are underpinned by our company-wide commitment to the Banking and Finance Oath.


Be real and genuine. Tell the truth. Let people know where you stand. Use simple language. Call things what they are. Demonstrate integrity.


Sum of whole is greater than its parts. Commitment to synergistic behaviours that value Judo success over individual performance.


Say what you’re going to do. Then do what you say you’re going to do.


Continuously improve. Increase your capabilities. Be a constant learner.

Our oath

Underpinning our four core values is Judo Bank’s 100% commitment to the Banking and Finance Oath.

The Banking and Finance Oath is an effort to re-assert the ethical foundation of the banking and finance industry beyond regulation and compliance, by broadening expectations and discussion to include ethics, integrity, honesty and trust.

We believe adhering to these ethics, combined with our Judo Bank values, will create brighter outcomes for our customers and the communities they serve. This is why each member of our team personally signs The Oath when joining Judo Bank.
