Let's make banking fair

We use banks every day. Paying for groceries. Saving for a home.

But a royal commission has shown banks don't always treat us fairly.

Let's fix the banks for good

We think banks should put our interests first, not just their own.

We're calling for:

  • Fines that fit the crime…when a corporation breaks the rules

  • Compensation for victims…people hurt by banks' behaviour

  • Banks acting in our interests…not just their own

  • More power for ASIC…our banking umpire

CHOICE has been in there from day one of the royal commission, fighting for consumers like you.

We've won a huge increase in penalties for banks and other financial institutions that do the wrong thing.

After dozens of high-profile banking scandals in Australia, people pushed our politicians for a formal inquiry - a royal commission.

Its full title's a mouthful: the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry.

But its aims are to investigate poor conduct in the industry and put forward solutions to help make the system work better for all Australians.

Who's hurt by bad banking behaviour?
