In early 2022, NAB launched its Indigenous business strategy, with the aspiration to be the Bank that backs Indigenous business.
To realise this aspiration NAB established a specialist team of bankers who understand the Indigenous business sector. This team will provide a cultural bridge between Indigenous business owners and NAB.
Noel Prakash, NAB Executive, Indigenous Business Banking, believes while NAB actively supports Indigenous employment and community, it is time to use our business banking strength to drive Indigenous business growth.
“Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Leaders have been driving positive change in Australia for generations. This doesn’t show any sign of slowing down,” he said.
“The Indigenous business sector provides a significant and growing commercial opportunity for NAB. For us to fully realise this opportunity, the most important thing is making sure our team is appropriately trained to meet their needs. This includes from a cultural perspective.”
