A parliamentary committee has been told that the total cost of customer remediation programs in the financial services sector has now topped $10bn. However, the Australian Securities & Investments Commission’s deputy chair Karen Chester said that customers have only been paid $660m in compensation to date. Meanwhile, ASIC chairman James Shipton has indicated that the corporate regulator will release updated guidance on responsible lending obligations before the end of 2019.
