History
The presence of Commonwealth Bank is part of CBA’s long term strategy to expand its business in Asia Pacific, particularly in Indonesia and China. In Indonesia, it was marked with the opening of its representative office in 1992.

In 1997, CBA established a joint venture to provide corporate banking services to Indonesian business entities, and then it became Commonwealth Bank, with CBA as a majority shareholder in 2000.
In 2007, as part of an expansion plan to develop Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) market, Commonwealth Bank acquired the Surabaya-based Bank Artha Niaga Kencana (ANK), which had a strong presence in Eastern Java. The acquisition established Commonwealth Bank’s footprint to broaden its reach to Eastern Indonesia.

Strong and Confident
Commonwealth Bank maintains ‘AAA’ national long-term rating with Stable Outlook since 2010 from PT. Fitch Ratings Indonesia (Fitch), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fitch Ratings Ltd. ‘AAA’ is the highest rating assigned to any debt issuer, reflecting the Bank’s high level of creditworthiness with the strongest capacity to repay investors. Such rating allows Commonwealth Bank to attractively price its issuance of local debt instruments to fund future growth.
As one of the most important markets in Asia, Indonesia offers opportunities of substantial growth. With a solid financial service as the Bank’s firm foundation, CBA will continue providing extensive supports and looking forward to seeing Commonwealth Bank plays a significant role and bringing positive influence towards Indonesian banking sector.

Sustainability
The Bank always views that monetary gain is not merely the objective of the business. No less important is the social activities the Bank has taken part, as part of giving back to society and the bedrock to build a sustainable corporation.
One of the highlights worth mentioning is the Womenprenuer Indonesia for Sustainable and Empowerment (WISE) financial literacy program for women entrepreneurs, in collaboration with partners and communities to share knowledge on business and finance to improve financial wellbeing.
