Commonwealth Bank sponsors Vietnam Swans

Posted by Vietnam Swans on September 2, 2009

Given the choice, would you prefer to look at a banker holding a Commonwealth Bank bag in front of HCMC's CBA branch? Or would you prefer to look at a couple of Commonwealth Bankettes holding a Vietnam Swans bag, wearing ao doai's - with one blowing in the breeze?

On Monday night, Danny Armstrong, Swans National Treasurer and General Director Vietnam for the of Australia, handed out Commonwealth Bank / Vietnam Swans travel bags to each of the Vietnam Swans travelling to this weekend’s Asian Champs in KL.

For added colour and controversy, each bag carries the player’s nickname (and in several instances, nicknames were discovered for the first time during the presentation ceremony!). Interestingly, while “Sleepy” and “Dopey” received guernseys, none of the other Seven Dwarfs were represented. In the fashion stakes, it was all about strides with “Mr Pants” and “Harry High Pants” figuring prominently. Some nicknames, like “Danny” (for Danny Armstrong) became controversial just because they weren’t controversial!

The Commonwealth Bank is Australia’s largest and most reputable financial institution.  We have more than 96 years of experience in financial services and are a strong and trusted foreign bank operating in the Vietnam market, with an international Standard and Poors “AA” credit rating.

We opened our first full branch of the Commonwealth Bank in Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City in August 2008.  The Bank provides a wide range of products and services including multi-currency personal and business transaction and investment accounts; foreign currency exchange; 24 hour x 7 days a week ATMs; remittances; consumer, home and business loans; international trade facilities; and wholesale foreign exchange and money market services.  With our experienced and friendly team, Commonwealth Bank offers the great service you would expect from a leading foreign bank, including multi-lingual customer service specialists.

Leading our team in Vietnam is Danny Armstrong.  He is responsible for banking operations in Ho Chi Minh City, our representative office in Hanoi and banking strategy for the Commonwealth Bank Group in Vietnam.

The Vietnam Swans are proud to be sponsored by the .
