Our where

A proud regional and community focused bank, our headquarters are located jointly in Bendigo and Adelaide. Through our Australia-wide branch network, and our Agribusiness specialists out on rural properties, we’re dedicated to building long-term relationships with our customers, shareholders, and the communities we serve.

Our history

The Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group has a long and proud history.

For more than 160 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 form the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group, an Australian owned, top 100 ASX listed company, with more than 110,000 shareholders.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank has assets under management of more than $71.4 billion and market capitalisation of around $3.3 billion.

We are Australia's 5th biggest retail bank, with more than 7,400 staff helping our more than 1.9 million customers to achieve their financial goals.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's vision is to be Australia's bank of choice. We believe our success is driven by our purpose - to feed into the prosperity of our customers and the communities in which we operate.

This history informs who we are today.
