Australian Unity

Australian Unity is a national healthcare, financial services, and independent & assisted living organisation providing services to almost one million customers, including 300,000 members nationwide.

As a trusted mutual company with a history dating back to 1840, Australian Unity has developed a strong focus on taking care of members.

This purpose was forged in previous centuries when governments did not provide the social and welfare services that many Australians now take for granted.

Today, the nation is facing increasing pressures from an ageing population. Australians are faced with new challenges. These include creating financial security in an increasingly uncertain economic environment, dealing with the rise of chronic diseases, and finding a secure and healthy life in retirement.

Australian Unity is uniquely placed to help Australians deal with these challenges. We are a diversified group of businesses offering healthcare, financial services and retirement living services. We employ more than 2,000 staff in various locations across Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Queensland. Our products and services are designed to enable customers to achieve a sense of wellbeing. Our understanding of wellbeing is derived from 15 years, with Deakin University, of the Australian Unity Wellbeing Index.

We aim to enhance the wellbeing of our members and customers through the provision of high trust products and services.

From health insurance and preventative health programs, to investments, banking, community care and retirement solutions, we provide services that maintain the security and dignity of our customers throughout their changing life stages.

Our four main businesses are Healthcare, Wealth, Independent & Assisted Living and Personal Financial Services.

Healthcare

Australian Unity Healthcare consists of health insurance, a corporate health fund (GU Health), dental clinics and allied health services (Remedy Healthcare). Through these business operations, along with award-winning wellness benefits, Australian Unity is focused on innovative and integrated approaches to improve the health of members and customers.

Wealth

Australian Unity Wealth provides specialist property, fixed interest, mortgage, investment bonds and equity products. The business has extensive in-house investment expertise, complemented by joint ventures with specialist investment professionals. Big Sky Building Society, a subsidiary of Australian Unity, provides a comprehensive and competitive range of products and services spanning banking, advice and insurance.

Independent & Assisted Living

Australian Unity Independent & Assisted Living business provides home care, aged care and retirement communities across NSW, Victoria and Queensland. In February 2016 we successfully transferred the NSW Government’s entire NSW home care services, including disability services and Aboriginal home care services, significantly expanding our operations in home care. The business’ organic growth also continues to be driven by the development of new retirement communities and residential aged care which support the daily living and care needs of 21st century retirees.

Personal Financial Services

Personal Financial Services provides professional, fee-for-service, strategic advice to help its clients improve their current financial position and ultimately achieve their long term lifestyle goals. The main business areas include financial advice, finance broking, and risk broking.
