It is inevitable that Westpac CEO Brian Hartzer will have to step down in the wake of the banking sector’s latest money laundering scandal. This will leave ANZ’s Shayne Elliott as the only CEO of a big four bank who was appointed prior to the Hayne royal commission. The only issue for Westpac’s board is whether to opt for an internal or external successor. Meanwhile, questions need to be asked about the failure of Austrac to ensure that Westpac and the Commonwealth Bank were complying with anti-money laundering laws.

CORPORATES
WESTPAC BANKING CORPORATION – ASX WBC, COMMONWEALTH BANK OF AUSTRALIA – ASX CBA, AUSTRALIA. ATTORNEY-GENERAL’S DEPT. AUSTRALIAN TRANSACTION REPORTS AND ANALYSIS CENTRE, AUSTRALIAN SECURITIES AND INVESTMENTS COMMISSION, AUSTRALIA. ROYAL COMMISSION INTO MISCONDUCT IN THE BANKING, SUPERANNUATION AND FINANCIAL SERVICES INDUSTRY, AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND BANKING GROUP LIMITED – ASX ANZ, NATIONAL AUSTRALIA BANK LIMITED – ASX NAB
