OnePath manages funds worth around $48bn, with ANZ entering a strategic alliance to make available IOOF superannuation and investment products to ANZ customers.

“The sale of our P&I and ADG businesses provides ANZ with greater flexibility to consider options for the life insurance business including strategic and capital markets solutions.”

ANZ has been investing heavily in its digital capabilities of late. Recent announcements include a partnership with Fitbit, acquisition of a property app business and rollout of Apple Pay. The company has also entered an alliance with JP Morgan to develop payment networks using blockchain technology.
