NAB corporate and institutional bankers ranked #1 in Australia for overall satisfaction



Australia’s biggest companies recommend NAB’s corporate and institutional bankers to their peers more than any other bank, according to the 2021 Peter Lee Associates Large Corporate and Institutional Banking Survey.

Surveys released by Peter Lee today are leading indicators of performance across corporate and institutional banking in Australia, covering Relationship Banking, Transactional Banking and Debt Securities Origination.

NAB’s Corporate & Institutional Bank received an overall net promoter score of +37, the highest of any bank in Australia. Net Promoter Score (NPS) measures customer loyalty and satisfaction with a company.1

David Gall, Group Executive – Corporate and Institutional Banking, said this was an outstanding result for NAB and demonstrated a focus on being there for clients when they needed us and delivering on what we promised.

“Our most important job is serving customers well. This set of results really highlights how our bankers have supported institutional businesses with creative ideas and the right solutions,” Mr Gall said

“The foundation of those relationships, along with a deep focus on the right products and services, is helping support new opportunities and growth for our clients in 2021 and beyond. We thank our clients for their participation in the survey and for their feedback.

“In particular, Transactional Banking results show our investment in rebuilding our transactional offer and improving our digital platforms is the absolutely right way forward. We also continue to maintain an impressive leadership position across a full range of origination products, with a strength and depth of service unmatched by other providers in capital markets.”
