During and following the GFC, the Australian banking sector continued to perform strongly relative to international peers. Our banking institutions remain profitable, adequately capitalised and well-positioned to meet the various global regulatory requirements.

However, Australian banking institutions are currently facing unprecedented challenges on multiple fronts. These include: structural changes due to technology; heightened regulatory scrutiny; competition from non-traditional financial service providers; and subdued credit growth.

Gen Advisory comprises a collaborative, multi-disciplinary team of professionals. Our team members have extensive banking industry and regulatory experience, having previously been employed by: the Australian Government; Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA); and National Australia Banking Group (NAB), among others.
