MLHSBC: dead man walking

The mass affluent service, launched in a blaze of publicity and hype a year ago, appears to be on its last legs. It has consistently failed to gain sufficient customers to meet its ambitious targets.

Rising interest rates and wider economic worries point to a pessimistic outlook for the coming year but it may be that cautious consumers will spend on home improvements instead.

NAB: trouble at the top

NAB [NAB] chief executive Frank Cicutto has resigned following the discovery of unauthorized foreign exchange trading leading to a total pre-tax loss of A$360 million. John Stewart, the head of NAB's UK operations has been appointed as the new chief executive.
