The Australian Securities & Investments Commission’s case against National Australia Bank over claims that it charged customers for services that were not provided is due to go to court in May. NAB has conceded that it did the wrong thing in regard to customers who were not linked to a financial adviser, but the bank has rejected claims that it was in the wrong in instances where the customer was linked to a financial planner. It appears to be arguing that making advice available to this second group of customers justified the charging of a fee.
