New poll: Australians draw the line at badly behaving banks

Almost half of Australians would consider changing banks if they became aware that the bank was behaving unethically, according to a new Oxfam Australia survey.

The national survey, which examined attitudes of 1000 Australians towards Australian banks and ethical investment, revealed 75 per cent of respondents don’t think that banks should provide loans to companies behaving in an unethical way.

The findings come as an Oxfam Australia report released today reveals the savings of ordinary Australians continue to be used by the nation’s four largest banks to back companies connected to land grabs that are forcing people off their land with little or no compensation.
