Foreign-owned subsidiary banks

Foreign banks wishing to carry on a banking business in Australia must obtain a banking authority under the Banking Act issued by APRA, either to operate as a wholesale bank through an Australian branch or to conduct business through an Australian-incorporated subsidiary. Foreign banks which do not wish to obtain a banking authority may operate a representative office for liaison purposes, but the activities of that office are restricted.

There are a number of foreign subsidiary banks, however, only a few have a retail banking presence – HSBC Bank Australia, Delphi Bank (now an Australian Bank), Bank of Sydney and Citibank Australia have a small number of branches. Foreign banks have a more significant presence in the Australian merchant banking sector.
