Connecting local and international perspectives to power new opportunities.
As one of Australia’s most recognised brands, Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) is a leading provider of personal banking, business and institutional banking and share broking services in Australia. CBA has a strong balance sheet, with total assets exceeding A$979 billion (as at 31st December 2019). By market capitalisation CBA is among the world’s 15 largest banks (as at August 2019).
Our Institutional Banking & Markets division provides relationship management and product capability for CBA’s major corporate, government and institutional clients. The division offers a full range of capital raising solutions and financial markets capabilities, as well as transactional and risk management products and services.
Today’s landscape is one of increasing international flows amid several forces that include globalisation, people movements and international capital flows. These megatrends are blurring industry boundaries to create ‘ecosystems’.
We have responded by structuring our Institutional Banking & Markets business into ecosystems, which enables knowledge and insights to be shared across diverse and increasingly connected industries, sectors and markets. Our team is able to provide new perspectives to unlock ideas and help our clients innovate and grow, both locally and across the world.
CBA’s ecosystems include:
Efficient Supply Chains: This ecosystem supports the end-to-end production, manufacture, transport and sale of goods through to consumers. It combines agricultural, retail, contracting, food & beverage, industrials and logistics.
Future Cities: This ecosystem supports the infrastructure that underpins a growing population and evolving society. It combines real estate, infrastructure and sustainable finance.
Future Resources: This ecosystem supports the increasingly integrated end-to-end global production, trade and consumption of natural resources and energy. It combines oil & gas, mining, power generation and utilities.
Intelligent Finance: This ecosystem connects global investors with opportunities in the Australian market, while also connecting Australian investors with global investment opportunities. It combines funds management, private equity and insurance.
