Australasia and beyond
The Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) may be headquartered in Melbourne, but the bank has operations across the globe with major outposts in China, East and Southeast Asia, the South Pacific Islands, the United Kingdom and the United States. Aiming to be a "superregional bank" by 2012 with 20 percent of its revenue coming from Asia, the bank took some big steps towards this goal in August 2009 by scooping up a number of the Royal Bank of Scotland's Asian businesses.
In 2008, ANZ named its Hong Kong office as a centralized regional hub for its Asia Pacific operations. With assets of more than AU$471 billion as of September 2008 (the end of ANZ's fiscal year), and boasting more than 6 million personal, private banking, small business, corporate, institutional and asset finance customers, ANZ is one of the four largest banks in Australia.
