Below is a consolidation of all my writings about my Australian bank Westpac where I have a savings account and I recomend that you get one there as a hedge against possible USD hyperinflation.

Below is an email from one of my Australian bank contacts. I have a savings account there and met with Caden in March 2013 when my wife and I visited there.
“I just wanted to say hi and let you know that I have accepted a new role back in branches in the Sydney CBD. If you need help with your readers as I have done in the past I am more than happy to help. I will be back in the branch network as of next week.

Let me know your thoughts.

Kind Regards.

And here is yet another:

Good morning Mr Reed,

My name is Sushila Balasundar (fondly referred to as “Sushi”) and I have recently taken over as your new Westpac Premium Relationship Manager.

My experience as a banker spans over 20 years spreading over 3 continents. In my role at Westpac Premium, I will be your primary point of contact for all your banking needs. As a high value customer of the Bank, it is my responsibility to ensure that you are getting the most out of your relationship with Westpac, both now and in the future.

I’m passionate about helping my customers save time and money, as well as look at novel ways to make their money work hardest for them. By doing this hopefully they can devote more energy to the things that they love doing.

I am based at 60 Martin Place, Sydney and am contactable on any of the below contact streams. I will call you in the coming weeks to arrange a face-to-face meeting so that we may better get to know each other.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Kind regards,

Sushi Balasundar
