Interim Report of the Royal Commission

28 September 2018

Today’s release of the interim report of the Royal Commission into Financial Services, Insurance and Superannuation, marks a day of shame for Australia’s banks.

There are no excuses for the behaviour that has been exposed by the Royal Commission.

Banks accept responsibility for their failures and right now they are working day and night to make things right for their customers.

We will fix these problems and make them right without delay, to earn back the trust of the Australian public.

We will build a banking industry which acts with integrity and is once again respected by our customers and the Australian community.

The industry will respond to the specific findings in the Interim Report through a submission in the coming weeks.

ENDS
