The Banking and Finance Oath (The BFO) is proud to introduce the 2020 cohort of Young Ambassadors – a Program encouraging and supporting students, graduates and young people to contribute to a strong ethical foundation as they begin their careers in the banking and finance industry.
As a strong supporter of The BFO, the Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia, Philip Lowe, has announced the 2020 cohort, acknowledging the importance of trust, integrity and ethics in fostering a positive culture within the industry.
“Finance is all about trust. When a deposit is placed in a bank, we trust it will be repaid. We also trust financial institutions to invest our hard-earned savings for us. And we trust them to provide us with sound advice. Without this trust, the financial system cannot operate properly and the economy cannot prosper. As the first line of The Banking and Finance Oath says: ‘Trust is the foundation of my profession’. The Young Ambassadors, as future leaders in the industry can help to rebuild trust in finance through the example they set” said Governor Lowe.
Recognising young people as the future leaders of the industry, Governor Lowe congratulated the seven successful candidates, who have demonstrated a strong commitment to ethics in banking and finance:
- Louisa Brown, Graduate, NAB
- David Goldfeld, Graduate, UBank
- Elle Griffin, Senior Analyst, CBA
- Michelle Lim, Consultant, KPMG
- Ricky Rangra, Student, The University of Sydney
- Anu Sharma, Graduate, NAB
