Liberty ended the financial year with a tier 1 capital ratio of 16.1 per cent and total capital ratio of 17.1 per cent.

The lender has established in excess of $2 billion of funding capacity for the upcoming year to support its existing businesses as well as new businesses that are to be launched.
