NAB halts trading amid leadership speculation

Are heads about to roll?

The National Australia Bank has entered a trading halt as it prepares to announce leadership changes, fuelling speculation that its CEO, chairman or both will leave their positions.

CEO Andrew Thorburn and chairman Ken Henry were issued a scathing rebuke by Commissioner Kenneth Hayne in the financial services royal commission final report when it was released on Monday.

Thorburn in response cancelled his long-service leave and faced Your Money reporter Ticky Fullerton on Wednesday.

Now one or both look likely to exit the bank.

More to come.
