Rarity Scale: R3.

 

Background: The Bank of Adelaide was founded in 1865 in Adelaide by a group of prominent businessmen and was subsequently incorporated by an act of the Parliament of South Australia.

The new Bank commenced business in Gresham Chambers but later moved to its permanent site at the corner of King William and Currie Streets.


The bank established four remote branches and then in 1886 it expanded further when it absorbed the failed Commercial Bank of South Australia. A London office was added in 1890.

The Bank was the only local South Australian bank to survive the financial crises of the 1890’s and the 1900’s saw a return to growth with more new branches in country locations across South Australia. The growth continued after WW1 with the first interstate branches, Sydney (1919), Melbourne (1920), Perth (1922), and Brisbane (1927). Much later Dandenong (1963), Hobart (1970) Canberra City (1968), Woden (1975) Belconnen (1977), Townsville (1978).

In 1969, The Bank of Adelaide acquired the Finance Corporation of Australia Ltd. with the purpose of increasing the Group's flexibility.

In 1979 after a period of financial trouble the Bank of Adelaide and its subsidiary the Finance Corporation of Australia Ltd. was absorbed into the ANZ Bank. The Finance Corporation of Australia Ltd then became part of the ANZ Bank’s finance business Esanda Limited, later from 1986, the Esanda Finance Corporation Limited.
