Judges’ comment

This story revealed further forensic detail about the Commonwealth Bank’s unscrupulous disregard for their financial planning clients.

Adele Ferguson, along with her colleagues at the ABC and Fairfax, has demonstrated remarkable tenacity and an ability to see this story in all its facets: the emotional on financial impact of lives; the regulatory and the political consequences.
