Following the deferral of a decision on the interim dividend in April 2020, ANZ’s Board also determined an interim dividend of A25 cents per-share, fully franked.
ANZ Chief Executive Shayne Elliott said the bank’s performance during these difficult times demonstrates the strength of the business as it balances the need to support customers and staff through a one-in-100 year global pandemic while providing a fair return for shareholders.
Elliott said ANZ’s purpose of shaping a world where people and communities thrive had guided the bank’s response.
“Challenges clearly still remain, however moving quickly to protect the things that matter, engage with key stakeholders, adapt for a new world, while also preparing for the future has us well placed,” he said.
