Business conditions a bit tougher: Westpac


Business conditions are a little bit tougher now than they were in September, says Westpac chief executive Brian Hartzer.

Mr Hartzer made the comments as he kicked off the bank's market update on its consumer and its commercial and business units. A similar presentation was held in September.

Westpac's market update will include a presentation from George Frazis, CEO of Wetpac's Consumer Bank, and David Lindberg, who heads its Commercial and Business Bank.
