Since March 2008 Adelaide Bank has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Bendigo Bank. The merger between Bendigo Bank and Adelaide Bank Limited in 2008 has created one of Australia’s greatest margin lenders. The bank has come a long way from its pre-merger days. Its asset base has surpassed $26 billion and it now generates more than 3% of the national mortgage loan approvals. 75% of all lending is now conducted outside of its South Australian roots as the bank continues to broaden its geographic exposure. Integrity, performance, innovation, teamwork and fun remain the four key values of the organisation as they forge they way through a new era of banking for their customers, staff, partners and the community.
