2022 ADF Annual Report Now Available

The ADF has shown it is uniquely placed to help, particularly in challenging and uncertain times.

Following the easing of restrictions associated with COVID and despite unemployment falling to a historic low of 3.4%, organisations and consumers were disrupted by supply chain issues and inflation peaking at 7.8%. These factors conspired to create a great deal of uncertainty and risk, particularly impacting those in most need: the people the Church serves.

Being of Church, the ADF supports a sustainable, diverse, cohesive and just society in which all can flourish. We understand the significant responsibilities of stewardship; the need to balance margins with mission; adhere to civil and canonical obligations; and be responsive to competitive market forces. In these challenging times, our commitment is to bring mission, margin and management together, in new ways for a market competitive offering.

Our purpose to support your mission and the Catholic community is our key differentiator to the banks. With no shareholders, and existing solely to finance and support the Church, our responses can be tailored to support both customers and mission.

In 2022, the ADF was able to distribute $20m to the Archdiocese to fund numerous pastoral programmes and initiatives. A further $1m was committed to assist the Archdiocese with improving its cyber resiliency.
