Now Officially a Bank
Now Officially a Bank
Perth, May 30, 2018 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Goldfields Money Limited (ASX:GMY) ("Goldfields Money" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, following recent reforms to Section 66 of the Banking Act 1959, Goldfields Money is now able to refer to itself as a bank in Australia. Until now, the Company has been designated an authorised deposit-taking institution or ADI, with customers benefitting from the Australian Government Deposit Guarantee.

In the reforms to Section 66 of the Banking Act 1959, the Federal Government has allowed authorised deposit-taking institutions, such as Goldfields Money, to use the word "bank" and its related expressions in reference to our banking business in Australia without restriction.

Goldfields Money has recently launched its new digital banking platform, while working hard over the last two years to improve the quality of our service offering and provide a banking platform that is leading edge, highly scalable and one that offers significant benefits to our customers.

Goldfields Money's CEO and Executive Director, Simon Lyons, said "We are very pleased with the legislative reforms that now allow us to be recognised as, and to promote ourselves as, a bank in Australia. It has been frustrating in the past that, although we offer the same services as other banks, we have not officially been allowed to refer to ourselves as a bank."

"With the roll-out of the new banking platform now complete, we are pleased to be in a position to market ourselves officially as a digital bank to a wider customer base who are used to dealing with banks and their products via the internet or by using an app on their smart phones."
