The Mutuals Industry webinar, held on 14 September, provided insight into the latest developments in the Australian Mutual Bank Industry. The webinar discussed the challenges and the opportunities facing Mutual Banks around ESG, Conduct and Regulatory change in a post-COVID-19 environment.

Mutual Banks are asking themselves what strategies will provide the most impact when responding to Responsible Lending during COVID-19, what Sustainable Finance could look like and how they should respond to regulatory changes associated with design and distribution obligations and the interest rate risk framework requirements.

During this webinar, which was led by KPMG’s National Head of Mutuals, Brendan Twining, we were joined by our expert panel to discuss a range of topics.

Key topics

  • Trends in ESG, Climate and Sustainable Finance: understanding and responding to the new regulations and market expectations with Mark Spicer, Director, Audit, Assurance and Risk Consulting (AARC).
  • Compliance and Conduct risk: strategies to approach responsible lending in a post-COVID-19 environment with Mandy Rashleigh, Director, AARC.
  • Design and Distribution Obligations: Understanding product governance and responding to Design and Distribution regulations with Cecilia Storniolo, Director, AARC.
  • Preparing for Interest Rate Risk Framework changes: how Mutuals are responding to APRA’s changes to interest rate risk in the banking book (IRRBB) under APS 117 with Luke Gower, Associate Director, AARC.
