ANZ has been around since 1835, but it’s continually evolved to meet the demands of the changing marketplace– Same DNA, different ANZ. Let’s talk about the bank we’re building now for the future.
Five years ago we set a bold ambition – to simplify and strengthen the bank, focus on areas where we can deliver great customer outcomes and provide decent returns for shareholders.
We’ve made great strides, simplifying the bank ahead of our peers and helping customers to take advantage of opportunities as well as supporting them through challenges. We’ve delivered against our ambition, creating a strong position that allows us to anticipate and embrace change.
Now it’s time to shift gears, to think ahead and paint a picture about our future.
The ‘Bank We’re Building’ is designed to bring together the things that collectively define us – our purpose, our strategy and our culture.
Our purpose - to shape a world where people and communities thrive – hasn’t changed. Purpose drives what we do at ANZ, underpinning the decisions each of us make every day. We bring our purpose to life by delivering on our strategy.
Our strategy is to improve the financial wellbeing and sustainability of customers focused on:
- Helping people save for, buy and own a sustainable, liveable and affordable home
- Helping people start or buy and sustainably grow their business
- Helping companies move goods and capital around the region.
We’ll achieve our strategy by emphasising four aspects – propositions, platforms, partnerships and people. You can find out more about what this means on Max.
We’re building a better bank to adapt, to evolve, to survive and to flourish over the long term.
I’m excited and inspired about our future, about The Bank We’re Building and I hope you are too.
