Reserve Bank governor Philip Lowe has praised the resilience of Australia’s financial system and said that it is well-placed to ride out the coronavirus pandemic. Lowe has also told a Financial Services Institute webcast that banks should utilise the capital and liquidity buffers that they have built up over the last decade and continue to lend during the pandemic. Lowe also repeated his view that the prospect of negative interest rates in Australia is unlikely.
