About Mutual Marketplace

Jointly owned by Credit Union Australia and People’s Choice Credit Union, Mutual Marketplace provides professional procurement centre of excellence services to the mutual sector. Our vision is to deliver enhanced procurement outcomes to make our credit unions more cost efficient, allowing them to focus their energy on helping members achieve their financial aspirations.

Credit unions are founded on the principle that we achieve more together than we can alone, and Mutual Marketplace is a continuation of that ethos. Mutual Marketplace doesn’t just make great business sense; it embodies the purity of purpose of cooperative financial services.
