Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Ltd (BEN) is Australia’s largest retail bank outside of the big 4 ASX banks. The company has a network of brands which provide a wide range of products and services to customers including personal and business banking, insurance, financial planning, commercial mortgages, and investment products.
The company’s history began in 1858 when the Bendigo Mutual Permanent Land and Building Society was established on the Bendigo goldfields. Not long after in 1877, the South Australian Hindmarsh Building Society was established. Through the merger of Bendigo Bank and Adelaide Bank in 2007, these businesses came together to form the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group.
Today, the bank has a number of other brands under its banner and employs over 7,000 staff to service its 1.8 million customers across the country. The bank’s history on the ASX dates back to 1985 and similar to other ASX bank shares, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank is now widely considered an ASX dividend share, as opposed to an investment focused on capital growth.
