The Financial Services Royal Commission's interim report, which was tabled by the Government today, is now available on the Royal Commission's website.
The interim report covers a range of issues identified across the first four rounds of hearings held in Melbourne, Brisbane and Darwin between March and July 2018. These hearings were informed by the information provided by the public, regulators, consumer advocacy groups and financial services entities.
Additional topics, including superannuation and insurance, considered in hearings held in August and September 2018, will be covered in the final report due by 1 February 2019.
With the interim report now publically available, the Commission is inviting submissions in response to the issues that have emerged in the report. Submissions in response to the interim report can be made on the Royal Commission website and must be received no later than 5pm on 26 October 2018.
The next and final round of hearings for the Royal Commission will be held in Sydney (19-23 November 2018) and Melbourne (26-30 November 2018). The final report is due to be submitted to the Governor-General by 1 February 2019.
