KPMG partner Martin McGrath said: “The regionals have shown year in and year out that they are competitive and capable of sustaining good, solid profits in the face of immense competition.”

“This result coupled with their strategic initiatives this year firmly stamps their position as a significant force in the Australian financial services landscape.”
