Sponsorship Portfolio

The things that matter to ANZ are the same things that matter to our customers and our staff - like being an active and positive member of the communities in which we live and work.

Sponsorship is one of the many ways we contribute to these areas, both nationally and in local communities. We're involved in a diverse range of activities that reflect the values of our brand, our staff and our desire to make a positive difference in people's lives.

Through partnering with organisations and events, we aim to facilitate meaningful engagement opportunities for our customers, the community and our staff.

Who we sponsor

ANZ partners with groups and organisations that reflect our brand values and communicate these to our existing and potential customers in a meaningful way.

Our sponsorship strategy is focused on developing assets within our current portfolio, including tennis as our global brand platform, complimented by national sponsorships that support our staff, customers and the local communities in which we operate.
