Post Royal Commission: impacts by industry

The Royal Commission into Misconduct in Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services put the industry under heavy scrutiny and had wide-ranging implications.

While this was an incredibly challenging period, it has now prepared banks better than ever before to handle the current crises confronting the industry. As the situation evolves, meeting demands and supporting customers and communities at a time when everything else is uncertain, is essential.

In light of the current changes, we've taken a look at what's happened since the Royal Commission and what these changes mean for different industries. There will be challenges ahead but, with clear guidance and direction, businesses can be prepared for what's to come.
