"There will not be a return to the level of credit growth that banks experienced pre-crisis for the foreseeable future, particularly in our major domestic markets in Australia and in New Zealand", said ANZ Chief Executive Officer Mike Smith.

"It's important to reflect that our customers, our staff and the broader community benefit from safe, well-run commercial banks - banks that also generate profits that underpin investor and superannuation returns and that can be re-invested to expand lending," he stated.

ANZ said that it has to continue adapting its business model to changes in the banking environment, particularly across its retail and wealth management operations. The company continued focus delivery of super regional strategy.
