Westpac CEO Brian Hartzer has told his executive team that there is no need to "overcook" the money-laundering and child exploitation scandal that has embroiled the bank. He has argued that it is not a major issue for "people in mainstream Australia". Sources have also indicated that Hartzer has told executives to focus on issues such as lifting Westpac’s net promoter score and writing more home loans. He is also said to have downplayed any comparisons to Enron and Lehman Brothers.
