In 2018, following years of scandal in the Australian financial sector, a government-backed inquiry (known as the Royal Commission) was conducted to investigate instances of misconduct. From the results of the Royal Commission, the Australian government developed a better understanding of the weaknesses in the financial sector. The Banking Executive Accountability Regime (BEAR) was implemented to help address some of these weaknesses.
