Banks & Financial Institutions
Collaborating for economic stability
Banks and financial institutions are playing a critical role in stabilising Australia's economy during the COVID-19 pandemic. They are providing a financial resilience at a time of great uncertainty.
The industry is taking a long-term view and working pragmatically with its customers to help businesses remain viable and keep people in their homes. It's collaboration for economic stability and it's the best path forward to recovery.
The industry has emerged stronger in the wake of the Royal Commission into Misconduct and, in many cases, refocused on its core businesses. The intense legal and regulatory scrutiny remains, however, and while exceptions are being made, the industry cannot lose sight of the changes to come.
