Speaking to journalists yesterday, Mr Swan said he was gearing up to launch a wave of banking reforms that would reignite competition in the mortgage industry.

A ban on exit fees would be among a series of penalties on the majors, which yesterday reported a cumulative profit of $21.7 billion for the financial year.

The government will also be looking at ways to help smaller lenders and non-bank lenders challenge the majors for market share.

“What we will do is make the system more competitive, give more powers to the ACCC and put in place a range of reforms to keep them honest,” Mr Swan said.
