Submission to the Royal Commission Interim Report

14 November 2018

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

We as Australia’s banks accept full responsibility for these failures and right now are working to make
this right for customers who have been hurt. The ABA thanks all those customers who have come
forward to give evidence along with Commissioner Hayne and his team for the comprehensive
examination of the issues.

behaviour. These include a focus on sales rather than service, poor culture and the way staff and third
parties were paid.
