The ABA submission to the Senate Economic Committee, the submission addresses the importance of certainty regarding capital raises and distributions to banks.
Australian banks operate in a competitive and dynamic environment. They compete with each other and with other financial service providers, including tech companies, to provide products and services to consumers.
