Talking Ideas: Banking Bad with Adele Ferguson

Adele Ferguson’s investigations into financial institutions over the last five years were influential in bringing about the Banking Royal Commission. The commission that uncovered shocking truths about industry practices.

While tracing the origins of the banking scandal, Adele Ferguson asks whereto from here in her new book Banking Bad. Adele discusses the origins of the scandal dating back to the 1990s, the highly-ranked executives who fell very publicly from grace, the compromised regulators, and the recommendations of Commissioner Kenneth Hayne to a government who never wanted the investigation at all.

Adele is a strong advocate for improving whistleblower protections and giving vulnerable people a voice. She is a multi-award winning senior business writer and columnist for leading newspapers The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and the Australian Financial Review. She is a regular guest reporter on ABC's Four Corners and the author of the best-selling unauthorised biography of Gina Rinehart, the richest woman in Australia.

Watch Adele’s Gold Walkley-winning investigation for Four Corners, Banking Bad. You can read a range of Adele’s most recent work via her website.
