    Lost home, fees for the dead - Australia banking inquiry hears testimony

    An Australian inquiry into the financial services sector heard tearful testimony on Thursday from a nurse who lost her home after taking advice from a major lender, and that the country's biggest bank knowingly charged dead clients for counsel. The testimony was among the most personal yet at the Royal Commission that has already resulted in startling admissions of bad behaviour by firms. Government data prepared for the inquiry shows over 80,000 consumers have been given bad advice over the past decade, costing them a total A$5 billion (£2.7 billion).

    NAB under fire as Australian banking inquiry opens

    The first day of a powerful judicial inquiry into Australia's scandal-ridden banking sector on Tuesday heard National Australia Bank Ltd issued almost $19 billion in home loans under a scheme involving falsified documents. It was the first bombshell of what promises to be an explosive year-long inquiry into the financial sector and especially the "Big Four" banks, which dominate the country's A$1.7 trillion ($1.36 trillion) mortgage market. Rowena Orr, a barrister assisting the Royal Commission inquiry in Melbourne, said NAB had derived more than A$24 billion ($18.9 billion) in home loans from the scheme between 2013 and 2016, when the misconduct took place.

    RBNZ leans towards ramped up capital reporting requirements for banks - deputy governor

    The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) said on Wednesday it was considering ramping up reporting requirements to make major Australian-owned banks' capital ratios more transparent. Deputy Governor Geoff Bascand told the country's banking association in a speech that the RBNZ, which acts as the banking regulator, thought transparency could improve as it reviews banks' capital requirements. "Even for the Reserve Bank, which has access to banks' modelling documentation and regularly meets with the big-4 banks' modelling teams, it is sometimes unclear how risk-weights have been arrived at," Bascand said.

    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.
