There is speculation that the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority could grant full banking licences to fintech start-ups Volt Bank, 86400 and Judo Capital by the end of 2018. They would be subject to the same capital requirements as other banks, while gaining the trust of consumers will be a challenge. However, they should benefit from a lack of legacy IT systems and branch networks, as well as negative sentiment toward traditional banks in the wake of the royal commission.

CORPORATES
AUSTRALIAN PRUDENTIAL REGULATION AUTHORITY, VOLT BANK LIMITED, 86400 PTY LTD, JUDO CAPITAL PTY LTD, AUSTRALIA. ROYAL COMMISSION INTO MISCONDUCT IN THE BANKING, SUPERANNUATION AND FINANCIAL SERVICES INDUSTRY, AUSTRALIA. DEPT OF THE PRIME MINISTER AND CABINET, AUSTRALIA. DEPT OF THE TREASURY
