Media Release Financial Stability Review

As part of its longstanding responsibility for the stability of the financial system, the Reserve Bank has periodically outlined its assessment of the health of the Australian financial system, including in its Annual Report. In common with the practice of a large number of other central banks, the Reserve Bank has today published a more detailed assessment in the form of a Financial Stability Review. This practice will be continued half-yearly in March and September.

The Review is available on the Reserve Bank's website (
