ANZ has had a presence in Malaysia since 1971. In 2012, we opened a Branch office in the Labuan International Business and Financial Centre.
The Branch complements ANZ’s existing Representative Office* in Kuala Lumpur and its partnership with AmBank Group, one of the largest banking groups in Malaysia. The ANZ-AmBank partnership includes customer referrals between the banks, the creation of new products and services and joint cooperative deals for large regional companies and Malaysian conglomerates. It provides ANZ customers with local support and advice, as well as a full range of banking products and services to meet their working capital, trade, debt and equity capital markets requirements in Malaysia. ANZ holds a 23.8% stake in AmBank Group.
Through our presence in Malaysia, ANZ connects customers across 33 countries worldwide, including nine in ASEAN: Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, Myanmar (Representative Office) and Thailand (Representative Office).
*The ANZ Representative Office in Kuala Lumpur has no products to sell in its own right and is not permitted to undertake any commercial banking activity.
