Commissioner Kenneth Hayne has broadened the banking royal commission’s terms of reference to include the $A344 billion mortgage broking sector. Many had been surprised that the sector was not included in the royal commission’s original terms of reference, given that over 50 per cent of all mortgages are generated via mortgage brokers. Mortgage & Finance Association of Australia CEO Mike Felton contends that the sector’s professional standards are improving, while he notes that it has been the subject of two major reviews in the last 18 months.
