Australia’s banking index gained six per cent in the week ended 8 February, with the rally being attributed to renewed interest in the sector among international equity investors. Rahoul Chowdry of law firm Minter Ellison notes that sovereign risk concerns regarding Australian banks have abated following the release of the financial services royal commission’s final report. Mike Evans from the Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Marianne Birch of Macquarie Capital agree that the final report has created greater certainty for investors.
