A challenger bank has been granted a banking licence in Australia, about a year on from its original launch.

The lender, Judo Capital, has now been granted a licence to operate as an authorised deposit-taking institution (ADI) under Australia’s Banking Act.

Last week, the bank’s chief executive, Joseph Healy, said these plans were in the works from the outset.

“From day one, when we decided to build Judo, we built it with the intention of eventually becoming a bank,” he said.

“We believe that – notwithstanding the higher regulatory cost associated with being a bank – there are a lot of other benefits that allow you to grow and offer businesses a greater range of options than we would be able to offer if we were a non-bank lender,” he said.
