The Commonwealth Bank of Australia has posted unaudited cash earnings from continuing operations of $2.4bn for the March quarter, compared with about $1.3bn for the same period in 2020. CBA’s common equity tier one ratio was 12.7 per cent at the end of the quarter, well above the regulatory requirement of 10.5 per cent. CBA has more than $10bn of excess capital, and CEO Matt Comyn says its capital management plans are likely to be a key focus for investors when its full-year earnings are released in August. Brett Le Mesurier of Velocity Trade expects CBA to return up to $12bn to investors in the 2022 and 2023 fiscal years via a share buyback
