Senate inquiry calls for wholesale funding review

Staff Reporter 1 minute read

In what could be a win for small and regional banks, a senate inquiry has urged the government to review their controversial bank guarantee.

Yesterday, the senate inquiry released a report that calls for a review of the government’s decision to charge smaller banks higher fees to gain the benefits of wholesale funding guarantees.

According to the regulations currently in place, banks with an A credit rating are required to pay a 1 per cent annual fee on any funds raised under the guarantee, while banks with a AA credit rating pay only 0.7 per cent a year.

Although some banks have managed to raise funds on their own, more than $120 billion has been raised using the wholesale funding guarantee since it was introduced late last year.
