Westpac, National Australia Bank, AMP and IOOF Holdings are among the financial services groups that will be subject to legal action in 2019. Further legal action in the sector is expected in the wake of the financial services royal commission. Josh Mennen of law firm Maurice Blackburn has flagged mortgage lending practices as an area that could attract legal action. There are also indications that the Australian Securities & Investments Commission will be more willing to pursue legal action against banks in 2019.
