The Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group has a long and proud history.
For 158 years, we have actively listened and responded to the needs of our customers and their communities.
Our history began in 1858 on the Bendigo goldfields when we responded to the sudden and rapid wave of migration, establishing the Bendigo Mutual Permanent Land and Building Society to improve conditions for thousands of migrants seeking their fortune.
Soon after in 1877, South Australia's Hindmarsh Building Society was established, founded on the principles that home ownership was the cornerstone of a successful community and that owning a home should be possible for everyone.
These businesses and more than 80 other organisations have come together to become the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group, an Australian owned, top 60 ASX listed company, with more than 99,000 shareholders.
Bendigo and Adelaide Bank has assets under management of more than $65.7 billion and market capitalisation of around $4.6 billion.
We are Australia's fifth largest retail bank, with more than 7,200 staff helping our 1.6 million customer to achieve their financial goals.
Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's vision is to be Australia's most customer-connected bank, and we believe our success is driven by helping our customers and the communities in which we operate to be successful.This history informs who we are today.
