Over 15-16 April 2021, the CEOs of the four major banks (ANZ, CBA, NAB and Westpac) were called to appear at a hearing of the standing committee on economics for its ongoing Review of the Four Major Banks and other Financial Institutions on Thursday.
During the hearing, the bank heads were asked by members of the committee how they were working to ensure that Australian borrowers were able to access finance to buy homes, among other topics relating to lending, house prices and the economy.
