Malcolm Turnbull clashes with corporate Australia Australian Financial Review Jul 18 2017 11:30 PM Phillip Coorey   EXCLUSIVE  The Turnbull government's strained relationship with corporate Australia has come under more duress following some heated exchanges between the Prime Minister and the nation's leading chief executives at a private dinner in Sydney on Monday night. Multiple sources, all speaking on the condition of anonymity, have told The Australian Financial Review that while there was mutual recognition that both sides needed each other and a genuine desire to be constructive, Malcolm Turnbull upbraided the business leaders for not helping out more with donations and generally not being more vocal in advocating the government's agenda. This invited complaints from the corporate leaders that much of the government's agenda was not friendly to them. One CEO listed as examples the imposition of the bank tax, the implementation of changes to section 46 of the Competition...

Roy Lavis is a decent hardworking Aussie bloke and a real life hero. Why? He stood up to the Thieves who inhabit the upper floors of the Commonwealth Bank. "Narev Nofriends" sits in his luxurious tower, busy counting his bonuses and running his PONZI Financing Empire. His only visitors and adoring fans are Turnbull and ScoMo. All three masters of the universe care not one jot for the people in the streets below, who innocently enter his Bank to be screwed..........Then along comes ROY. Roy Lavis decided to tell his own story of Bank Bastardry on 60 Minutes last night. As a provider of significant numbers of jobs he made his mark in running his significant businesses. Narev would ensure he was a prime target for offering more and more debt to ensure he eventually toppled over from the sheer weight of bank "asset-stripping" practices. Then came the STING: the devaluing...

Banks told to sign up to forex deal or be shunned The Australian 12:00am July 17, 2017 David Rogers, Andrew White   Banks that fail to sign up to a new global code of conduct for the $6.6-trillion-a-day foreign exchange market will be barred from dealing with central banks as well as with other signatories to the voluntary code, according to the man who spearheaded its development, Reserve Bank deputy governor Guy Debelle. In an exclusive interview with The Australian, Mr Debelle said he was confident banks had begun improving their behaviour, even before the code came into effect, and that the dark days since the global financial crisis were over. “The main message is ... that the code is out there now and we expect people in the market to start adhering to it pretty shortly and sign up to the statement of commitment,” he said. “But I would say...

Spotlight shines on shadow banking The Australian 12:00am July 17, 2017 Michael Roddan   Tough new powers for the prudential regulator to target the shadow finance sector will allow it to slap new rules on individual non-banks, the entire industry, or “specified” classes of lenders, as part of a crackdown on potential sources of instability in the financial system. The Turnbull government will today release draft legislation for consultation on its budget commitment to give the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority new powers over the activities of non-bank lenders. Currently APRA only has powers to regulate authorised deposit-taking institutions, which look after customer money that has been deposited with a lender. The shadow banking sector has remained outside the scope of the regulator, even in cases where the sector may be materially undermining the strength of the financial system. APRA has launched several new measures aimed at limiting excessive lending in the...

Turnbull’s meetings ‘should be classed as secret Lib business’ The Australian 12:00am July 15, 2017 Sean Parnell   Meetings that Malcolm Turnbull held with cabinet ministers should be deemed Liberal Party business and therefore out of reach of ­freedom-of-information laws, his advisers have argued. In an extraordinary escalation of the government’s campaign to keep official diaries secret, the Prime Minister’s lawyers­ have asked the Administrative Appeals Tribunal to depart­ from 35 years of FOI practice and declare such meetings purely political. The Weekend Australian applied­ for Mr Turnbull’s diary of September 16, 2015, his first full day as Prime Minister after successfully­ challenging Tony Abbott. It was also a sitting day, so the Prime Minister — the head of cabinet, responsible for setting the government’s priorit­ies — was in Parliament House. While some jurisdictions ­routinely release official diaries, such as those for the NSW and Queensland premiers, the federal government is...

In a Treasury consultation paper for the new Banking Executive Accountability Regime, released yesterday, the government floated plans to give the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority the power to establish “new expectations” for banking executives and their remuneration. The measures were...

  ANZ: Australia “place of choice” for property money laundering By Unconventional Economist in Australian Property at 12:15 am on July 13, 2017 | 3 comments https://www.macrobusiness.com.au/2017/07/anz-australia-place-choice-property-money-laundering/   By Leith van Onselen After Australia was last month placed on a watch list by the global regulator – the Financial Action Taskforce (FATF) – for failing to comply with money laundering and terrorism financing reforms, ANZ Bank has blamed a lack of political will by successive Australian governments for failing to extend anti-money laundering (AML) laws to cover real estate gate keepers like realtors, lawyers and accountants. From The ABC: Australia’s hot property market is an attractive haven for criminals, with estimates that billions of dollars of dirty money is being laundered through residential property. Australia’s anti-money laundering law does not cover real estate agents, lawyers and accountants, despite promises when the law was enacted in 2006 that the legislation would be widened. ANZ’s...

Bank staff ‘overlook criminal activity to keep clients’ business’ The Australian 12:00am July 13, 2017 Sam Buckingham-Jones   Traders and advisers from Australian banks and other financial institutions are willing to overlook suspected cases of money-laundering and terror financing to keep a client’s business, the ­financial intelligence agency says. In an assessment of why Australia’s financial system has a high-medium risk of facilitating criminal activities, a new report by the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre — AUSTRAC — found financial institutions must improve their reporting systems and work on the “vulnerability” posed by front-­office staff. “There is considerable scope for entities operating in these markets to improve their anti-money-laundering/counter-terrorism financing systems and controls to be able to identify and submit suspicious matter reports,” the AUSTRAC Money Laundering and Terrorism Fin­ancing Risk Assessment report found. “Front office staff, such as traders and advisers, can represent a vulnerability.

Crime gangs targeting financial markets The Australian 12:00am July 12, 2017 David Uren   Criminal syndicates, many based in China and Hong Kong, are ­infiltrating Australia’s financial markets, with more than 660 ­suspicious transactions covering fraud, insider trading and money laundering reported in the past two years to the financial intelligence agency AUSTRAC. The agency’s review of vulnerability in the financial sector finds the risk is increasing as cybercrime becomes increasingly sophisticated, exploiting gaps in com­mu­ni­cation between financial institutions. “Serious and organised crime groups have exploited the sector to launder money and engage in market manipulation,” says the report, which focuses on trans­actions involving securities and derivatives. Fraud is the biggest source of criminal activity, accounting for half the suspicious transactions that financial institutions must by law to report to AUSTRAC. Just more than a fifth of suspicious transactions (21 per cent) involved money laundering while a further 21 per cent...

BFCSA: THE CBA BIG STING - CBA SYSTEMIC breaches of trust  on 60Mins   The CBA have been accused of one of the most serious systemic breaches of trust imaginable. They have been accused of forcing productive small business customers into receivership and bankruptcy. The bank and its CEO Ian Narev have strenuously denied doing this. They say there is no need for a Royal Commission as they have fixed all the scandals.   Watch 60 minutes this Sunday and find out what they have been hiding. CBA won't be able to blame a "few ro...tten apples" and staff for this scandal. Systemic "constructive foreclosures" can only be carried out under the instruction of the Senior Executives and Board. The Banking System is rotten to the core and needs an urgent ROYAL COMMISSION INTO THE BANKS and without the political interference from Malcolm Turnbull  ...

Wave of money points to looming pressure on RBA to lift rates The Australian 12:00am July 12, 2017 Adam Creighton   A wave of inflation is about to wash over Australia, compelling the Reserve Bank to lift interest rates, if the long forgotten, but reliable, link between increases in prices of goods and services and changes in the quantity of money in circulation still holds true. A trio of economists, including Malcolm Turnbull’s current economics adviser, have produced provocative research showing that the growth rate of the money supply — the value of notes, coins and bank deposits — is galloping ahead of economic activity, with the potential to compel the Reserve Bank to lift rates. “If a gap like this remains we could be facing 3 per cent-plus inflation in two or three years, the top of the RBA’s band,” said Griffith University economics professor Tony Makin. The excess of...

From BFCSA Member.   Open letter to PRIME MINISTER Malcolm Turnbull: Banking Sub Prime Scandal.   Dear Prime Minister, I am writing to publicly ask you to right an enormous injustice which has continued on your watch.   Since you were elected, I have personally suffered far more than I can describe here - because of what the banks which you appear to be protecting have put myself and so many others through.   If you insist on going against the will of some very desperate people including myself, at our great expense I might add, then I must insist that you at least give something back to at least this one.   You seem reasonable, so I think in light of your actions I believe it perfectly reasonable for me to ask you if you might be so kind as to pay out my purported home loan?   It's a...

Westpac ditches mortgage products in major product review Australian Financial Review Jul 10 2017 10:29 PM Duncan Hughes   Westpac, the nation's second largest mortgage lender, is ditching mortgage and equity-release products in a high-level review of its product range and underwriting standards. The top-down review is expected to reassess dozens of loans and lending packages, which include credit and insurance products, as the bank and its subsidiaries adjust lending criteria to changing market conditions. It is being undertaken as major big four competitors continue to tighten lending for interest-only loans, increase mandatory deposits for home loans and tighten access to credit-related products. It also comes as new independent research backs prudential regulators' fears about potential bottom line, long-term risks to borrowers being created by soaring property values and static incomes needed to repay inflated loans. "Westpac is currently reviewing our suite of home loans," the bank is telling mortgage brokers...

The ‘sub-prime’ market is back in business The industry is terrified of using those words, but the fact is people bankrupt just a year ago can now get a mortgage   8 July 2017 https://www.theguardian.com/money/2017/jul/08/sub-prime-mortgage-bankrupt The “sub-prime” mortgage sector shut down following the financial crisis in 2007-08, but brokers say more and more lenders are returning to the market – with some willing to lend to people who were bankrupt as little as a year or so ago. On 30 June new retail bank Masthaven became the latest company to open its doors to people who have suffered financial problems, such as one or two missed mortgage payments, or who have county court judgments against them, depending on how big and how recent these CCJs are. Meanwhile, some of the existing players have been cutting the cost of their deals. Pepper Homeloans, which caters for those with “credit blips or previous...

One by one the housing bubbles pop: Ireland, Spain, UK, US, Canada…   By Houses and Holes in Australian Property   at 12:20 am on July 10, 2017 | 69 comments     10 July 2017 https://www.macrobusiness.com.au/2017/07/one-by-one-the-housing-bubbles-pop-ireland-spain-uk-us-now-canada/   Now we get the real test. A potential and proverbial perfect storm for housing. For the first time ever, Canada is facing overvaluation in its biggest markets, over-indebted consumers, a major tightening of mortgage rules and the prospect of rising rates. This is not a drill. Homeowners might well start preparing for three things:   Tougher mortgage guidelines Canada’s banking regulator (OSFI) is proposing that anyone who gets a mortgage at a bank or bank-funded lender prove they can afford a rate that is at least 200-basis-points higher than their actual rate. A similar debt-ratio “stress test” is already in place for folks getting a default insured mortgage, as well as most variable-rate...

Advisers quit big banks, AMP as watchdog intensifies scrutiny The Australian 12:00am July 10, 2017 Michael Roddan   Financial advisers are deserting the major lenders, voting with their feet as the corporate watchdog heightens its scrutiny of the controversial cross-selling of wealth products in the “vertically integrated” lenders. The big four banks and AMP, which control nearly half of all financial advisers in Australia, have bled more than 400 advisers in the last six months, according to Bell Potter analyst Lafitani Sotiriou. Mr Sotiriou believes the rush for the exit has been caused by major banks limiting the freedom of their advisers to recommend products offered by rivals. National Australia Bank on Friday was slapped on the wrist by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission after it was revealed it failed to tell “at least” 150,000 customers its advisers were cross-selling the bank’s own products, including those sold by its subsidiary...

Why CBA 'dropped' Merrill Lynch Australian Financial Review Jul 9 2017 11:45 PM Tony Boyd   David Craig says the low point of his 11-year term as chief financial officer of the country's biggest bank was the capital-raising debacle in the midst of the global financial crisis. Craig has no compunction in saying the entire blame rests at the feet of the underwriter, Merrill Lynch. CBA successfully completed the $2 billion capital raising after sacking Merrill Lynch and employing UBS. However, in order to appease angry investors CBA had to cut the price the shares were issued by $1 a share or $608 million. Almost 10 years after that incident the wounds are still raw for Craig. To this day he believes the broker's lack of disclosure about CBA's loan book put a cloud over the integrity of the bank and Craig himself. Cloud cast a long shadow He never forgave...

Financial models understate rural risk, valuers warn Australian Financial Review Jul 9 2017 6:10 PM Larry Schlesinger   Investing in the rural sector based purely on financial modelling presents "inherent risks", valuers Herron Todd White have warned. The warning comes as a wave of investment capital pours into sectors like beef, cotton, horticulture and nuts, driving up prices as investors and operators compete for a limited pool of assets. "As specialist agricultural property advisors we are seeing buying decisions made solely on financial modelling however the ground truth of the model is not always done. This presents inherent risks," wrote Herron Todd White valuer Angus Shaw in the firm's latest rural market report. Mr Shaw said as the agricultural market approached 11 to 12 pm on the property clock in some parts of Australia or some sectors (meaning values are close to peaking) after strong seasonal conditions, it was critical that...

Market glut hits apartment demand The Australian 12:00am July 10, 2017 Rosanne Barrett   When unit owners contact Frank Gosdschan’s office looking to put their properties on the market, the Brisbane real estate agent asks: “Do you really need to sell?” Amid sluggish capital growth and an influx of new apartments on to the inner-Brisbane market, the McGrath agent said sellers had to be aware they probably would lose money if they had held the unit for fewer than five years. “I would say, ‘do you really need to sell it because the capital growth hasn’t appeared’,” he said. “This market is very, very tough.” Mr Gosdschan has a South Brisbane unit for sale with a price guide of $525,000 to $565,000. Official property records show it last sold for $579,000 in 2012. A wave of off-the-plan construction has added more than 5300 units in the inner city this year, with...

So the Turnbull government really should stop behaving like a deplorable mob of narcissistic twerps and do their job already!   I consider myself a pacifist generally but I can't speak for others.

Truckloads of fumigants needed to kill off all the fraud that lurks in banks IT systems binary code!

Regional businesses facing ruin as dairy farmers struggle to pay off debt ABC News8 July 2017 Sarina Locke   Rural businesses in dairy farming regions are facing financial hardship as farmers struggle to pay their bills, leaving huge unsecured debts. The trickle-down effect of last year's dairy crisis has been strongly felt in regional towns and local businesses in Victoria and Tasmania. Some farming families, who were left owing thousands of dollars when processors slashed the milk price and forced them to pay back money, have become reliant on charity handouts. Rural shops and service providers have been hit hard as farmers' bills have gone unpaid and business plunges into decline as spending dries up. The downturn has led businesses to withdraw sponsorship for local sporting teams. Average dairy farmer debt to banks reaches nearly $1 million According to figures from government agency ABARES, in the 2016-17 financial year the average...
