    Australia’s largest banks have stepped up screenings of mortgage loan applications amid a powerful government-backed inquiry into the nation's lenders and their sales practices, potentially hurting revenues from their most lucrative products. National Australia Bank communicated on Friday to mortgage brokers its stricter conditions to assess mortgage applications, according to emails seen by Reuters, becoming the latest of Australia's 'Big Four' banks to do so.

    Australia gives regulator sweeping powers over bank bosses' pay

    Australia has given its financial regulator sweeping powers to cap bank bosses' pays, delay their bonuses and even ban them from the industry if found guilty of non-compliance, as it scrambles to restore trust in the scandal-hit sector. The move, plans for which were first announced in May 2017, underscores the immense pressure on the government to rein in a sector that in recent years has faced accusations of withholding legitimate health insurance payouts, giving misleading financial advice and rigging interest rates. The series of scandals has cost Australian banks, among the most profitable in the world, hundreds of millions of dollars in fines and triggered a royal commission - an inquiry with the power to recommend criminal charges that starts next week.

    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.
