Australia’s major banks have urged the financial services royal commission not to over-regulate the way in which they assess corporate borrowers. The banks state that this would make it harder to increase their lending to small and medium enterprises. Their urgings have come as federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg called upon the banks to "keep open the books", while National Australia Bank executive Anthony Healy says the bank is more willing to lend to SMEs without proper security.
