ANZ’s first Private Bank in Canberra will be housed in the new premises at 15 Moore Street in Canberra City, which will ensure local clients have more convenient access to services to grow and protect their wealth.
ANZ House also brings a range of specialist banking services together including Retail Banking, Investments and Insurance, Corporate and Business Banking, Government Affairs and Small Business Banking.
In response to the biggest economic expansion in the Australia Capital Territory’s history, ANZ Chairman NSW & ACT, Mr Warwick Smith AM, said: "We continue our focus on providing a broad base of ANZ services in the ACT and our new office reflects this commitment."
ANZ Managing Director Private Bank, Mr Mark Ellis, said ANZ’s clients in the region increasingly require strategic investment advice tailored to their wealth management needs coupled with specialised banking services.
“With so many successful clients in the region it is essential we have a local office to provide them with the expertise and high service levels synonymous with ANZ Private Bank,” Mr Ellis said.
ANZ already operates 10 full-service branches and almost 50 ATMs in the ACT market, and demand for Business Banking and Financial Planning services have picked up strongly over the past year.
ANZ House is owned by the NDH Group, one of the largest privately-owned and operated commercial property group in the ACT. The existing building services at 15 Moore Street were significantly upgraded by the owners with a target building design of 4.5 ABGR (Australian Building Greenhouse Rating) prior to ANZ moving in.
