Financial industry: How do we make sure Australians know the risks?

Posted June 28, 2019 03:02:54 The financial industry is a big part of the Australian economy, with more than $6 trillion in annual revenue and over $20 trillion in assets.

The Australian government sets standards for how the industry operates, how it operates and what it charges consumers.

The regulatory framework around the industry is also extremely complex.

Here’s a look at what the industry says about its regulatory challenges.


Regulatory frameworks The regulatory frameworks for the financial services industry are complex and are highly sensitive to the financial industry.

The regulations are also complex because of the financial system and the regulatory framework.

In Australia, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSICS) and the Australian Deposit Insurance Corporation (ADIC) regulate the market for deposits.

The banks and insurance companies are regulated by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), which also regulates the banking sector.

The financial services sector is a global business with over 300,000 members in Australia and the UK.

There are over 1,500 registered financial institutions.


Competition regulator The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is responsible for ensuring competition in the financial sector.

It also enforces consumer protection and anti-money laundering laws.

The ACCC is the regulator for the Australian Competition Tribunal (ACRT) which sets the rules for complaints.

It is a federal agency that is responsible to Parliament and is a part of Parliament’s Consumer and Competition Committee.

The ACCT has been criticised for being too bureaucratic.

The Competition Commissioner is also the regulator of banks, credit unions and insurance firms.


Tax and other regulatory framework The Financial Services (Amendment) Act 2007 (FSAA) sets out the rules and standards for financial services companies, which includes the rules about the types of accounts they can make and the kinds of financial products they can offer.

It sets out a number of specific standards that make it a competitive market.

The FSAA also has an anti-dumping duty that allows the industry to claim against a competitor if it determines the competitor is dumping a product or service.


Tax rules The FSSA also has a tax rule that provides an incentive to financial companies to make their products in Australia.

The rules also apply to non-financial companies and institutions.

The Finance Act 2010 (FAA 2010) set up the Financial Transaction Tax (FTT) scheme, which is the largest single levy on financial transactions in Australia, at up to 30 per cent.

The FTT scheme is designed to encourage financial firms to keep their operations and operations costs low and to encourage investment in the Australian banking system.

The FTT is paid out in three ways: to banks and financial institutions (where the FTT applies); to consumers and businesses (where it does not apply); and to the Government of Australia (GCA) (where there is no FTT).


Insurance regulator The Insurance Corporation of Australia is a superannuation insurer.

It regulates the insurance market in Australia through its Insurance Products and Services Rules (IPSR).

The IPSR regulates the prices of commercial and industrial insurance products.

The IPST also sets out rules for the trading of insurance products between the industry and the insurance companies.


Financial reporting standards The Australian Financial Reporting Standards (AFRS) set out the types and amount of information that financial institutions and other financial institutions must make available in their financial statements.

These rules are designed to make sure that financial statements are as transparent and accurate as possible.

The AFRS sets out how financial institutions should report their activities and the costs of compliance.


Financial product and insurance regulatory framework There are different types of products and services in the sector, and the financial product and regulatory framework is complex.

There is a complex set of rules around how financial products and their costs are regulated.


Competition law The Competition Act 1998 (Cth) gives the Federal Government the power to make rules on competition in Australia that are “generally applicable” and have a “material effect”.

The Competition Tribunal has the power under the Competition and Other Legislation Act 1976 (Cllr 1976) to determine whether a competitor is doing something unfair.


Insurance regulation and supervision The Australian Insurance Corporation Act 1992 regulates insurance products and the activities of the insurance industry.

This Act also sets standards around the types, amounts and types of insurance that insurers are required to provide.

The Insurance Products Regulation (Regulation) Act 1994 regulates the activity of insurance companies and regulates the activities and costs of insurers.


Competition Tribunal The Competition and Markets Tribunal (CMRT) is a national regulator of the activities, prices, conditions and practices of the various Australian industries and organisations.

It enforces competition law and anti‑dumping and anti­monopoly laws.


Financial system The financial system is an important part of Australia’s economy and has been for a long time.

In 2017, the Australian Bureau of Statistics estimated that more than 10 per cent of the economy was directly or
