ANZ celebrates 135 years in Fiji and the Pacific

“We established our first Suva branch in 1883, and in 1951, the Bank of Australasia merged with the Union Bank of Australia to form ANZ Bank Limited,” explained ANZ CEO Pacific & CEO Fiji, Vishnu Mohan, at a function held in Suva to commemorate the milestone anniversary.

“We’ve since continued to grow our presence in Fiji with the acquisition of the Fiji operations of Barclay’s and Grindlays Banks in 1985, Bank of New Zealand in 1990, and Bank of Hawaii in 2002,” said Mohan.
