Please join ISS Securities Class Action Services and Phi Finney McDonald, a leading Australia-based plaintiff class action firm, for a discussion on the recently announced case against Australian’s first bank, and oldest company, Westpac (ASX: WBC).
This action follows the AUSTRAC proceeding commenced against Westpac on 20 November 2019, alleging 23 million breaches of the Anti-money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (Cth) (AML/TF Act).
Phi Finney McDonald is preparing a class action against Westpac arising from failures to advise the market of material information as well as misleading and deceptive conduct in relation to breaches of the AML/TF Act. The market has responded to this information, and by the close of trade on 22 November 2019, Westpac’s share price had fallen approximately 7%.
Westpac is a major Australian financial institution carrying on banking business in Australia. It is an authorized deposit-taking institution, with the capacity to transfer funds in and out of Australia.
