During CBA’s more than 100-year long and secure history, surviving through all types of market conditions, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia has earned customer's trust. As Australia's largest bank with AA international credit rating, customers know they can rely on Commonwealth Bank of Australia during both good days and uncertain times. CBA remains one of very few banks globally in the AA category. Since the onset of the financial crisis in 2008, CBA has increased its capital base and improved its funding and liquidity position by increasing customer deposits and long-term wholesale debt, while reducing the use of short-term wholesale funding.

With its strong reputation and solid financial foundation, Commonwealth Bank of Australia looks forward to seeing Commonwealth Bank Indonesia play a significant role in Indonesia's future, bringing a positive influence to the development of the Indonesian banking sector.
