Australia: Financial Services Royal Commission implementation roadmap published

The final report and recommendations of the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry, led by the Hon Kenneth Hayne AC QC, was published in February: see here. At the same time, the Australian Government published a response: see here (pdf). More recently - a couple of days ago, in fact - the Government published an implementation roadmap: see here (pdf).

Amongst the report's recommendations were those concerning the culture, governance and remuneration of regulated entities (see, in particular, chapter 6). In this regard, the roadmap notes, amongst other things, that the APRA is reviewing its work programme in this area and will publish a statement of its approach by the end of 2019.
