The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority will establish an independent panel to review the Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s governance, culture and accountability. CBA CEO Ian Narev has described the review, which follows a series of scandals at the nation’s largest bank, as a "positive and constructive step". However, ratings agencies S&P Global and Fitch have warned that CBA’s credit rating could be downgraded if the review results in any adverse findings. Shadow treasurer Chris Bowen maintains that a royal commission into the entire banking sector is needed.
