The Bank's position in relation to recent disclosures by NAB

23 January 2004

Regular ongoing reviews of market activity show no reasons for concern. However, in the light of recent disclosures by National Australia Bank, a more detailed internal review is currently being undertaken of the risk management processes supporting the Bank's foreign exchange options activity.
