Westpac (a portmanteau of "Western-Pacific", registered as Westpac Banking Corporation, Asx - WBC, Nzx - WBC), is a multinational Financial services, one of the Australian 'big four' banks and the second-largest bank in New Zealand.

As of the merger with St.George in December 2008 the bank has 10 million customers, Australia's largest branch network with almost 1200 branches and an ATM network with more than 2800 ATMs. The bank is Australia's second largest provider of home lending and Australia's second largest provider of wealth platforms by funds under Administration.
