Commonwealth Bank welcomes the release of Promontory Financial

Commonwealth Bank Chief Executive Officer, Ian Narev is pleased the report acknowledges the significant progress made in establishing the framework for the Open Advice Review program that is designed to deliver fair and consistent outcomes for all registered customers.

It gives the public visibility of the processes we have established to ensure all registered customers are treated fairly. We hope that this, and future reports to be released by Promontory, will build confidence in the processes we are following and show that we are committed to doing what we said we would do, making things right for our customers,” Mr Narev said.
