Administrative history

The Newcastle and County Mutual Building, Land and Investment Company was registered in 1886 for the purpose of acquiring lands in New South Wales, and building or renovating houses and buildings for lease or for sale. It also received money on deposit, and loaned money on the mortgage of freehold and leasehold securities. The company changed its name in 1957 to County Building & Investment Co Ltd. In early 1959 all the shares of County Building & Investment Co Ltd were purchased by Finance & Guarantee Co Ltd.
