Regulators face grilling over mortgage curbs, CBA conduct

APRA and ASIC will answer this week tough questions from David Coleman MP on macro-prudential measures and the governance and culture of CBA.

The House Committee on Economics will scrutinise ASIC and APRA this week as part of its review of the performance and operation of Australia’s corporate and prudential regulators.

The prudential regulator is first in line for questioning in Canberra today (12 September). Committee chair David Coleman MP said that APRA’s measures to reinforce “sound mortgage lending practices” will be scrutinised.

“The hearing will enable the committee to scrutinise APRA on its performance and operation, including the adoption of ‘unquestionably strong’ capital benchmarks for the four major banks and further measures to reinforce sound residential mortgage lending practices,” the chairman said.

“The committee is also likely to scrutinise APRA on other activities relating to the banking sector, including its inquiry into governance and culture at the Commonwealth Bank.”
