What we do

  • Making sure our customers receive fair outcomes when you make a complaint to the Bank
  • Identifying opportunities to improve the Bank’s products, services, systems and processes
  • Helping the Bank make better decisions through the use of data, insights and different perspectives
  • Speaking up for our customers – especially when you’re in challenging or complex circumstances.
