    Australia bows to years of pressure, announces inquiry into finance sector

    The Australian government said on Thursday it will hold a wide-ranging inquiry into a scandal-hit finance sector, arguing one was needed to restore public confidence as it reversed its long-held opposition amid mounting political pressure. The year-long Royal Commission, which will look at the conduct of banks, pension funds, insurers and other financial services firms, will have the power to compel witnesses and recommend criminal charges. It has the potential to be far more embarrassing for the industry than the regular parliamentary questioning of bank CEOs that Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has instigated in response to public outrage over scandals ranging from misleading financial advice to breaches of anti-money laundering rules.

    Australia's Westpac was a lead actor in rates rigging, regulator tells court

    The Australian corporate regulator accused Westpac Banking Corp (WBC.AX) of playing a leading role in the widespread manipulation of an important financial trading rate as it took the country's No. 2 lender to court on Tuesday. In an opening address to the Federal Court, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) laid out its case against Westpac, saying the bank was motivated to influence the Bank Bill Swap Rate, a crucial rate for the Australian finance system usually referred to as BBSW, because billions of dollars worth of its products were affected it. ASIC has accused Westpac and rivals National Australia Bank Ltd (NAB.AX) (NAB) and Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd (ANZ.AX) (ANZ) of rigging the BBSW to inflate profits from 2010 to 2012.

    Australia's Westpac Banking Corp said on Monday it plans to defend itself in a lawsuit brought by the nation's corporate regulator accusing it of rigging a key interest rate - unlike two rivals who have agreed to settle similar cases. Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd (ANZ) and National Australia Bank (NAB) reached settlements with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) last week. Westpac, the country's No. 2 lender, has not changed its position and will defend itself against the allegations, a bank spokesman told Reuters on Monday.

    Westpac said it would pay the customers about A$65 million ($51 million) in total, resulting in an after-tax charge of A$45 million ($35.3 million). The customers were supposed to receive cash payments for holding multiple "packaged" accounts since 2010 but did not get the money, Australia's No. 2 lender said. "Some customers did not receive discounts on ancillary products such as home and contents insurance and term deposits," Westpac said in a statement issued to the Australian Securities Exchange.
