At Bankwest, we’re proud to support WA farmers by having more business banking and full-service branch locations in regional WA than any other bank. Starting out as an agricultural bank and evolving to The Rural and Industries Bank of Western Australia (R&I) in 1945, Bankwest is the bank that has helped farmers build the agricultural industry in WA. Agriculture is at the heart of our history and remains a key focus for Bankwest.
