Mutual organisations have been around in Australia for more than 170 years, and will continue to play a key role in delivering the social infrastructure Australians need, Australian Unity Group Managing Director Rohan Mead told the Business Council of Cooperatives and Mutuals’ annual conference in November.

In his keynote address, Mr Mead offered an upbeat assessment of mutuals and member-owned organisations. He said they could take a longer term approach to some of the more economically challenging sectors of the economy such as the provision of aged care and mental health services, in comparison to listed organisations that were under pressure from shareholders to maximise profits, rather than maximise service.
