Revelations at the Royal Commission have also played a part in the rating game for many of the banks, but Standard & Poor’s Director Sharad Jain tells Ross Greenwood his agency has not revised any ratings in light of the commision.

“We currently do not see any strong evidence of any bank-specific issues generally.”
