Guess which bank?

Guess which bank?

The Chairman of a bank said at that bank's recent Annual General Meeting:

  "We think we will be an ethical bank, the bank others look up to for honesty, transparency, decency, good management, openness."

The bank concerned is:

a)  The People's Bank of Nigeria;

b)  The Venezuelan Savings Bank;

c)  The Kim Il-Sung Bank of North Korea; or

d)  Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

Close.  But no cigar.  The correct answer is d).  The comment was made, apparently in all seriousness, by David Turner, Chairman of the CBA, earlier this week.
