The ANZ Bank has posted a 2018-19 interim cash profit of $3.56bn, which is two per cent higher than previously. The result for the six months to 31 March included provision for $175m worth of remediation charges. CEO Shayne Elliott has flagged further cost-cutting measures in coming years, although he has downplayed talk of further staff cuts and branch closures. Meanwhile, Elliott says the banking sector’s mortgage loan repayment buffer of 7.25 per cent should be revised, given that the cash rate is just 1.5 per cent at present.
