“For the first time, banks are unveiling an industry-wide Financial Assistance Hub. The site aims to inform and assist bank customers so they know exactly where they stand, and the support their banks will provide them.”
Open Banking officially began in Australia on July 1. It will ramp up across the banking sector over the next few months. Customers will be able to securely share their data to get the best deal possible on credit cards, savings accounts and other deposit products.
On 17 October the ABA and a coalition of eight advocacy organisations held the Parliamentary Launch of the #StopElderFinancialAbuse campaign. The ongoing campaign has been run together with our partners Bauer Media, publisher of well known magazines such as the Australian Women’s Weekly.
