Westpac Banking Corporation: Introduction
Westpac Banking Corporation, which is commonly known as Westpac, is an Australia-based bank and provider of financial services. The roots of this bank can be traced to as early as 1817, when the Bank of New South Wales – which was the first bank in Australia – was established in Sydney. Following it, the bank expanded and opened branches overseas, including New Zealand (1861), Fiji (1901), Papua New Guinea (1910), and Tasmania (1910).
As a matter of fact, the Westpac Corporation that we know today was formed only in 1982, when BNSW and the Commercial Bank of Australia merged. Nowadays, Westpac serves customers worldwide and appears to be one of the largest banks in Australia – it has 1,429 branches and 3,850 ATMs.
At the beginning of 2018, Westpac had more than 14 million customers worldwide. The key products of Westpac Banking Corporation include credit cards, mortgages, private equity, global wealth management, investment management, investment banking, corporate banking, consumer banking, finance and insurance.
