The new banking sector watchdog will not be allowed to use any political connections it has to influence Government policy, it has emerged.
Other recommendations expected are:
- The watchdog will be funded by the banks, but will be independent.
- It will look at the behaviour of banks eg. around issues of how they incentivise staff to sell products.
- Membership is voluntary.
- The report is expected to cover all banking but will not make any recommendations about bank structure.
