Banking & Capital Markets

KPMG's Banking and Capital Markets practice is well placed to help clients successfully navigate challenging times and capitalise on opportunities.

KPMG can help banking clients navigate challenging times and capitalise on opportunities.

The global financial crisis has profoundly changed the shape of the international banking landscape. During this period, we have witnessed the nationalisation of commercial banks, the demise of the universal banking model and an unprecedented degree of industry consolidation.

Against this context, the Australian banking industry continues to perform strongly compared to international peers. Our banks are well capitalised, continue to achieve robust profits, and are well positioned to meet new global capital and liquidity regulatory requirements.

However, future challenges remain, such as a slowing local economy, subdued demand for credit, low levels of impairments, margin pressure and fast-evolving consumer demands. In such an environment, protecting and growing shareholder value requires that banks be customer focused and disciplined in their execution, whilst always maintaining a strong focus on managing their risk appetite and capital efficiency.

KPMG's Banking and Capital Markets practice is one of the leaders in the marketplace. Combining a strong local presence with access to a global network of banking professionals, KPMG’s Banking and Capital Markets practice in Australia is well placed to help our clients successfully navigate through these challenging times and capitalise on opportunities as they arise.
