Australian Prudential Regulation Authority chairman Wayne Byres has indicated that the structure of incentives in the financial services industry is currently a bigger concern for APRA than the level of remuneration. He notes that scandals in the sector have largely arisen when incentives have focused too much on growth and sales targets. Byres adds that although the general public’s trust in financial services providers has been tarnished by recent scandals in the sector, there is still a lot of trust in the underlying financial strength of such institutions.
