In October 2017 the Ambassadors were announced at a ceremony conducted by Deputy Governor of The Reserve Bank, Guy Debelle (pictured, centre). Industry leaders attended the event and the Ambassadors were recognised for the contributions they make to the industry.

Michael Wang

Michael has high regard for ethical behaviours in business as he feels any deviation from such behaviour can have great implications. Michael's main motivation to join BFO as a student ambassador is to develop more critical thought about how to better shape his own actions and behaviour in alignment with the Oath, and then have the capacity to guide others in a same light.

Sam Batchelor

Through his active participation with student leadership and volunteering opportunities, Sam believes that you have to be the change you want to see in the world. He hopes that this opportunity will provide him with the framework to do so and assist in creating a financial culture that promotes a sustainable future.

Elpitha Stavropolous

Elpitha is committed to contributing to a changing financial system; change that brings awareness of both individual and organisational responsibilities to our society.

Michael Leung

Michael shares the vision of the Banking and Finance Oath, which is to distil a set of guiding principles for ethical behaviour and a moral compass that guides decision making at a personal level.

Ranie Nyugen

Ranie is keen to collaborate with the other Industry Young Ambassadors to promote the idea of professional excellence and championing ethical behaviour to serve the greater good of the financial industry.

Zoe Parkin

Zoe believes that everyone in an organization, regardless of position or role, has the opportunity to positively impact an organization’s culture and reputation. She is a strong advocate of the core principles of the BFO and is going to be an invaluable contribution to the ambassador program.

The Oath

  • Trust is the foundation of my profession.

In these and all other matters;
My word is my bond.
