More than 500,000 retail customers of ANZ Bank will benefit from a deal closed this week that will give them access to an online stockbroking platform.

Key players: The Maddocks team advising CMC Markets Stockbroking Ltd (CMC) was led by special counsel Brendan Tomlinson.  He was assisted by partners Andrew McNee and Bruce Heddle, special counsels Arlene Colquhoun and Olivia Hillier and associates Jack Evans and Julian Law.

Deal significance: A technology outsourcing agreement finalised between CMC, ANZ Bank and Share Investing Ltd this week. CMC is a part of the global online retail financial services group, known as CMC Group. CMC’s platform is expected to be utilised by over 500,000 ANZ retail stockbroking clients.

The deal allows the bank to use the CMC-owned online stockbroking platform under a white label arrangement with ANZ branding.
