St.George Bank is a subsidiary of Westpac Banking Corporation trading primarily in New South Wales but with growing representation across a number of industry and business segments in Queensland and Western Australia. St.George also operates in South Australia and the Northern Territory under its subsidiary BankSA and until recently in Victoria before the relaunch of the Bank of Melbourne in July 2011. The bank maintains a large number of retail branches and ATMs across Australia and has some back office operations in Bangalore, India.
As a result of the merger of the bank with Westpac Banking Corporation in 2008 (see below), St.George customers now have access to Westpac ATM's, previously offered through a partnership with the National Australia Bank.

Famous quotes containing the word bank:
“It was like passing a boundary to dive
Into the sun-filled water, brightly leafed
And limbed and lighted out from bank to bank.
Thats how the stars shine during the day.”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
