Australia & New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ)
We note the following online reference to an ANZ Bank office apparently
located in Tehran, Iran (http://www.privatebanking.com/directory/middle-east-iran-tehran/banksrep-
In August 2016 ANZ refused Australian customers’ transactions with Iran, fearing US Treasury’s reaction.
Listed by U.S. Government as doing business in Iran. (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, List of Companies Doing Business With State Sponsors Of Terror, Removed from the Internet in July 2007)
We confirm that ANZ Banking Group does not in fact have any operations in Iran. We have contacted the website owner and they have now removed this erroneous information.
