Take the Oath

By committing to the Banking and Financial Services Oath, signatories are affirming that they respect the position of trust society affords them.

If you work in the banking and financial services industry and the Banking and Financial Services Oath resonates with you, we encourage you to become a signatory. You will be joining your peers and industry leaders in an initiative that aims to increase the consideration of stakeholders and bring more accountability to decision-making across the industry.

Signatory Fee

All Banking and Financial Services Oath signatories are aligned to the month of August. If you take it any time outside of August, your fee will be adjusted to align you to an August annual renewal.

There is a minimum annual signatory fee of

  • AUD $20 - 1 year
  • AUD $60  - 3 years
  • AUD $100 - 5 years

The amount has been set at a modest level so as not to be a financial burden on signatories. Your signatory fee contributes to funds that provide services and programs that benefit all signatories.

The BFSO is like a passport, it’s a commitment that stays with you irrespective of where or who you work with in financial services. In order to maintain your signatory and visibility on the BFSO website, we encourage you to re-sign up once you receive your renewal email.

We will send regular dilemmas and updates to challenge you and encourage reflection on the commitment that you’ve made to maintaining high ethical standards in the financial services industry.

All prices are in AUD$.
