Young Ambassador

The Young Ambassador Program encourages and supports students and graduates to adopt
a strong ethical foundation as they begin their careers in the banking and finance industry.

The Banking and Finance Oath (The BFO) has announced the successful participants of its 2019 Young Ambassador Program - a Program that encourages and supports students and graduates to adopt a strong ethical foundation as they begin their careers in the banking and finance industry. Against the backdrop of The Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services, there is an opportunity for individuals with strong ethical principles and integrity to assert themselves, reflect on what they want to stand for as a future leader, and consider how they can contribute to the betterment of the industry going forward.


Congratulations to the 2019 cohort, pictured here with Deputy Governor of the RBA Guy Debelle (back left) and The BFO Chairman Dr John Laker. The 2019 Young Ambassadors pictured left to right are: Danielle Simpson, Rabobank, Alex Long, BOQ, Alisa Doronina, ANU, Christina Wu, Westpac Institutional, Philip Joseph-Hauser, AMP Capital. Missing tonight from the event was Alex Green, Sydney University.
