ANZ reports fall in profit

Staff Reporter 1 minute read

ANZ today delivered a 21 per cent fall in annual net profit of $3.319 billion.

The reduction in profit was impacted by a $1.4 billion increase in credit impairment charges and a $700 million charge for credit risk on derivatives.

Mike Smith, ANZ chief executive said “the growth in credit losses is disappointing but our ability to manage and absorb this shows a high level of resilience”.

“Managing a large commercial bank means managing through a range of conditions. While we expect choppy conditions to continue in 2009, ANZ is well positioned to manage this cycle, to continue to invest and maximise the opportunities which arise.”
