Westpac is Australia's first bank and first company. It has been growing and prospering since first opening its doors for business in 1817, trading as the Bank of New South Wales.
In December 2008, Westpac merged with St.George Bank to create one of Australia's largest financial services organisation with around 10 million customers and approximately 40,000 employees in Australia, New Zealand and around the world. Today, Westpac is an even more diverse and stronger company - well positioned to meet the challenges of the current global environment.
Customers are at the centre of everything Westpac does. A key aspect of this customer-focused business strategy is our multi-brand approach, which is all about offering customers choice. Each of our brands provides a distinctive customer experience, but each brand is also committed to a common goal - delighting our customers.
