About Risk

We manage the risks that exist in all areas of the business and the environment in which we operate. We help maintain a strong risk governance and framework that originates at board level and cascades down through the NAB group. We contribute to NAB’s sustainability and resilience by partnering through the provision of risk insight, appetite and oversight.

Our risk teams provide a critical role in ensuring we deliver a great customer experience strengthened by the right risks, right controls and right returns.
