Thank you to all who have filled in the Bank Discrimination survey. We are continuing to correspond with the banks and follow up members issues. Interestingly we received some correspondence from the ANZ Bank in recent weeks that stated:

“With respect to individuals, ANZ does not differentiate on the basis of a customer’s occupation or industry affiliation and considers applications from all potential customers, subject to the same credit checks and assessments. With respect to businesses, ANZ considers both commercial and reputational aspects. There are a number of industries that ANZ does not typically service as it considers these fall outside of the expectations of ANZ stakeholders and may impact ANZ’s reputation and standing. ANZ currently considers the adult industry to fall within this category.”

Seems discrimination against the adult industry is alive and well in the banking sector!
