Peter King, CEO Westpac Group

At the end of January, I was able to visit some of the worst impacted areas following the bushfires around Albury, Wodonga, and Wangaratta. It was humbling to meet some of our customers affected by the catastrophe, hear their stories and how our bankers and local branches were doing everything they could to help them.

I'm incredibly proud of everything we did to support Australians and offering interest-free home loans was something I knew would ease the burden for many of our customers under significant financial stress.

Helping is what we do at's part of our DNA.
