The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority’s inquiry into the Commonwealth Bank of Australia continues to weigh on the banking sector. There is concern that CBA may come under scrutiny by APRA’s overseas counterparts in the wake of its money-laundering scandal. Credit Suisse has reduced its share price target for CBA by 10 per cent and warned of a governance crisis at the bank. Brian Johnson of CLSA notes that CBA could potentially incur much harsher penalties in offshore jurisdictions for breaching money laundering laws than in Australia.
