The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority has released the results of its latest stress test of the banking sector. Commenting on the results, APRA chairman Wayne Byres said banks need to get improved data on customers’ overall debt position, as well as coming up with better crisis plans. Digital Finance Analytics’ Martin North is critical of the lack of public detail in the stress test, while APRA has also been criticised by some economists for its very optimistic view of the state of Australia’s $1.7 trillion mortgage sector.
