ANZ Group Executive Australia Fred Ohlsson said: “By opening a flagship branch in the heart of Sydney’s traditional finance district, we are reinforcing to our customers the importance we place on growing our presence here in NSW as well as supporting our customers and local businesses.
“It made sense to build a flagship branch on the site of our original headquarters in NSW given NSW remains the powerhouse of the Australian economy. It also complements our existing presence in the CBD with ANZ Tower and our growing retail network across the state,” Mr Ohlsson said.
The new three-level branch in Martin Place is the largest in ANZ’s network. It features the full range of ANZ digital functions, including mobile banking app goMoney, smart ATMs, Apple Pay and internet banking across 21 digital screens customers can use throughout the branch.
There are conversational spaces for customers to consult with their banker and dedicated spaces for educational seminars and community events, and a vertical digital wall that spans all three levels of the branch and responds to the environment.
Since 2015, ANZ in NSW has opened four new branches, a home loan centre, two business centres as well as refurbishing 18 branches and four business centres.
