Presentation

Andrew Bowden

Good morning and welcome to Westpac's full year 2010 results announcement. My name is Andrew Bowden. Thanks for joining us whether you're here in person or in the web.

Presenting this morning will be Gail Kelly, our CEO, and Phil Coffey, our CFO. And as per usual practice, we'll run through the presentation that was launched this morning and then we'll open up for questions.

So without further ado, let me invite Gail Kelly to the [inaudible] and to start proceedings. Thanks, Gail.

Gail Kelly

Thanks very much, Andrew, and good morning everyone, those of you in person and those of you who are listening in by the way of telephone. Welcome to you all.

And I certainly realize it was only a month ago that we were actually here together discussing the productivity and IT initiatives, but today of course is our full year 2010 results, and I have all of my team here to help take questions, any questions that you may have at the conclusion of our presentation, and George Frazis who's on the phone from New Zealand.
