LATEST PODCAST: Westpac executive changes and best interests duty clarity

The Mortgage Business Uncut podcast is your weekly analysis of the biggest themes shaping the Australian mortgages market.

Join Alex Whitlock, Annie Kane and Charbel Kadib as they delve into the latest themes and developments in the home loan market.

In this episode, they discuss Westpac’s senior leadership changes in the fallout of AUSTRAC’s civil penalty orders, Westpac’s contracting home loan volumes, and the tabling of the amended best interests duty legislation for mortgage brokers.

This week they discuss:

  • Former Westpac CEO Brian Hartzer’s resignation
  • Macquarie’s growth in market share
  • Calls for clarity around the best interests duty legislation
