As the No.1 Institutional Bank across Australia, New Zealand and Asia, we harness the strength of our extensive global network, build strong, trusted relationships with our customers and focus on innovation.
WE MAKE THE COMPLEX SIMPLE
Our expert analysts enrich data and use advanced modelling to unlock insights that drive decision making. At ANZ Institutional, our data scientists and engineers have the tools and experience to help accelerate business.
ANZ leverages data, research and our expertise to generate insights that can help inform our customers’ strategy. Our rich consumer spending data in Australia enables valuable economic insights known as Economic Pulse.
Innovation has always been a critical part of banking. Think ATMs, internet banking and mobile wallets. All were groundbreaking when they emerged; now most of us can’t imagine life without them.
At ANZ Institutional, innovation underpins all our work with customers. From leading the way with a world’s first ever Orange Bond, to creating ground-breaking developments in digital currencies and putting energy efficiency to work.
WORLD’S FIRST EVER ORANGE BOND
The ‘orange bond’ is a four-year, $US50 million issue of sustainable debt structured under the Orange Bond Principles, aimed at supporting almost 300,000 women across Asia and Africa move towards “more sustainable, climate-resistant livelihoods”.
The Women’s Livelihood Bond Series leverages innovative financial instruments to advance gender equality at scale. ANZ has been involved in all five issuances totalling more than US$120mn.
ANZ has been exploring the digital asset and currency space for some time. In March 2022, ANZ successfully executed the first ever Australian bank issued Australian dollar stablecoin (A$DC) payment through a public permissionless blockchain transaction. A few months later ANZ worked with customer Victor Smorgon Group to successfully purchase tokenised Australian carbon credits (BCAU) using the A$DC. We will continue to explore new ways for customers to transact through new financial-market infrastructure.
PUTTING ENERGY EFFICIENCY TO WORK
ANZ and the Energy Efficiency Council (EEC) released Putting energy efficiency to work in May 2023, a report highlighting the significant contribution energy efficiency and electrification can make to cutting energy bills and decarbonising the Australian economy. ANZ and the EEC’s Forgotten Fuel Series highlights the role of energy efficiency and electrification in achieving Australia’s net zero goal. The series of three reports will demonstrate how businesses and households can put energy efficiency to work to accelerate emissions reduction, save money and improve health and wellbeing.
At ANZ Institutional, we established a dedicated health specialisation in 2005 to support our Institutional and Corporate customers and we’ve been leading the market ever since.
When it comes to health, we support our customers via an integrated coverage model across the Institutional and Corporate segments, enabling us to assess the market as a whole. Our customers have indicated the value of this model as a key differentiator when comparing ANZ Health to our competitors. It also affords us the ability to anticipate market trends, headwinds or investment opportunities across the industry.
