Neil looks out over the farm: “What a beaut!”

“Risk management is at the heart of how a bank earns trust from its stakeholders – whether they are customers, investors, regulators or the community.

The role of risk is to help ANZ anticipate and navigate its way through a complex environment, whilst continuing to build and sustain a trusted reputation.
