Take the Oath

By committing to The Banking and Finance Oath, signatories are affirming that they respect the position of trust society affords them.

If you work in the banking and finance industry and The Banking and Finance Oath resonates with you, we encourage you to become a signatory. You will be joining your peers and industry leaders in an initiative that aims to increase the consideration of stakeholders and bring more accountability to decision-making across the industry.

Signatory Fee

There is a minimum annual signatory fee of AUD$20, AUD$60 for three years and AUD$100 for five years. The amount has been set at a modest level so as not to be a financial burden on signatories. If you opt to pay more for your signatory fee you will be contributing to funds that provide services and programs that benefit all signatories.

The BFO is like a passport, it’s a commitment that stays with you irrespective of where or who you work with in financial services. In order to maintain your signatory and visibility on The BFO website, we encourage you to sign up once you receive your expiry email.

We will send relevant quarterly updates that encourage reflection on the commitment that you’ve made to maintaining high ethical standards in the financial services industry.

As of 1st March 2021 BFO and The Ethics Centre have now merged. Please see our press release for more details.
