Australian Major Bank Half Year Results 2019

Managing growth into the headwinds

The story of the results for the first half of 2019 shows that the big four Australian banks are under siege from all sides. The environment is one of low growth, declining NIM, regulatory change, remediation programs, increasing capital requirements, trust issues and the threat of new entrants and digital disruption.

The current focus of the banking sector is simply to execute on all of these programs with a high degree of urgency and complete their remediation requirements, as well as their digitisation and simplification transformation. The sector is remodeling its businesses, investing in core business growth and strengthening its risk management - determined to earn back trust.

This is the backdrop that informs our four considerations of the growth, efficiency, quality and capital of these results. In each section we compare the majors with each other and pose a series of questions aimed at assisting them to navigate the way ahead.
