Westpac pain laid bare at AGM

  • The AUSTRAC disaster dominated Westpac's AGM and will plague acting CEO Peter King's attempts to fix its broader performance problems.
  • In the space of about 30 minutes, Westpac’s outgoing chairman Lindsay Maxsted and its acting chief executive Peter King laid bare the size of the hole the bank finds itself in.

  • This will take time and it will be painful, but providing Westpac is comprehensive in addressing the AUSTRAC matter – and it simply must be – the bank should be able to get on top of these issues relatively quickly.
