History

  • 1840: Union Bank of Australia (UBA), a British bank with head office in London, agreed with the New Zealand Company to accompany settlers to New Zealand to provide them with banking services. UBA opened a branch in Petone, across the harbor from Wellington, where it transferred the branch shortly thereafter.
  • 1848: UBA opened a branch in Auckland, and a small number of branches elsewhere in the country followed.
  • 1864: Bank of Australasia, another London-based bank, opened branches in Auckland, Dunedin and Christchurch.
  • 1951: UBA and the Bank of Australasia merged to become the Australia and New Zealand Bank.
  • 1970: ANZ Bank merged with a third London-based bank, the English, Scottish and Australian Bank, to form ANZ Banking Group.
  • 1976: ANZ moved its corporate headquarters to Melbourne, Australia.
  • 1979: An Act of Parliament permitted ANZ to incorporate its branches in New Zealand as ANZ Banking Group (New Zealand) Ltd. ANZ sold 25% of the shares to the public.
  • 1989: ANZ bought PostBank from the New Zealand government in a privatization. Two years earlier the Government had separated the Post Office's banking business into a separate entity to prepare it for sale.
  • 2003: ANZ NZ bought National Bank of New Zealand from Lloyds TSB.
