The Evolution of Horizon

We have big news! In September Horizon Credit Union will begin trading under the name Horizon Bank.

Why change?

This change has been driven by a desire to safeguard Horizon’s long-term relevance and viability in an era of rapidly evolving technology, and regrettably, declining awareness of what a Credit Union is. Whilst the Horizon business and membership is as strong as it has ever been in our 55 years, a new generation of Horizon members is necessary to sustain us for the long term.

What’s changing?

What's not changing?

Our staff's commitment to go 'above and beyond' for our members. The things that make Horizon special – our member focus, our values, and our fantastic staff, will not be changing .These are the things that set us apart and that's how we'll continue.
