Recognition of our strength

The Commonwealth Bank won the 2008 Bank of the Year award from Money Magazine. And we have been awarded Best Bank – Australia by Global Finance Magazine 1.

Cannex has given more than 25 of our products a five star rating.

What are we doing?

We have been closely monitoring the global financial situation and it’s now evident that our years of disciplined credit and market risk management have set us up for dealing with uncertain times.  We were one of the first banks in the world to be granted advanced accreditation under Basel II, which is an important acknowledgement of our increased sophistication in risk measurement and management.

Our strong capital and funding positions, together with our sound management approach means we will continue to manage our business to protect the interests of our customers and shareholders.
