The Reserve Bank’s assistant governor Michele Bullock has praised the success of measures aimed at increasing the capital ratios of Australian banks. She notes that the four major banks are close to achieving the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority’s "unquestionably strong" capital benchmark. The banks’ capital ratios have increased from eight per cent to 12 per cent since 2013, when measured on a risk-weighted basis. However, Bullock has warned that APRA’s measures may be undermined if the non-bank financial sector’s market share increases.
