Banking Royal Commission Will Investigate Lending Practice First

The first round of public hearings for the Banking Royal Commission will focus on lending, including mortgages, credit cards and car loans; we heard today during the opening session.

The Commission highlighted the large size of the lending market, and the significant number of submissions they have already received on misconduct in this area, including relating to intermediaries, commission and advice.

In addition, as part of the opening address, we were told that some of the major players were unable to provide the full range of misconduct information that Commission requested. Some players offered a few case studies, and were then asked to provide more detail over the past 5 years (as opposed to 10) but said they could not meet the required deadline.
