Over the past year, the banking sector has been working hard to earn back the trust of the Australian community and improve its relationship with all customers, including small and medium sized businesses. To discuss these themes, and outline the new Banking Code of Practice, Anna Bligh will speak at a Small Business Breakfast on Friday 28 February.
The event will be free for all members of the Illawarra Business Chamber and local Chambers of Commerce.
“…banks can go back to their normal processes and that is working out what’s right for every single customer, on an individual tailored basis with a proper assessment. That is the best thing for the customer.”
Access to credit opens up opportunities and fulfills aspirations. Getting it right requires the right balance between consumer protections and the flow of credit.
Interviewed by AM’s Peter Ryan, ABA CEO Anna Bligh talked about the substantial drop in loan deferrals since their peak during the pandemic, falling from 900,000 to 300,000.
