So when the opportunity came to sign The Banking and Finance Oath (BFO) back in August 2015, I thought, ‘I’m an ethical person, why should I sign The BFO?’ Who’s going to know and was it just a PR exercise? However that’s not the point – its a symbol and a statement of what a person is prepared to do to live by a set of ethical principles. Its an explicit pledge to earn trust and have that pledge out in public where a signatory can be held accountable by peers, colleagues, clients and the community for sticking to that pledge.
I encourage you to check it out and sign up at thebfo.org
Also we’ve developed a regular information service for people concerned about where their super/investments/savings are being invested and would like to know more or do something about it. I’d love to include you on that list.
