ANZ is one of the largest companies in Australia and New Zealand and a major international banking and financial services group, which is among the top 100 banks in the world. ANZ world headquarters is located in Melbourne, where it first opened an office as the Bank of Australasia in the 1830s.
The English, Scottish and Australian Bank was established in 1852. This was an Anglo Australian bank. In 1951 the Bank of Australasia merged with the Union Bank of Australia to form ANZ Bank. In 1970 in what was then the largest merger in Australian banking history, ANZ Bank merged with the English, Scottish and Australian Bank Limited to form the present organisation, Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited.
