Abstract Extensive deregulation of the Australian financial system officially began in the early 1980s. Since 1979 there have been three inquiries into the Australian financial system. The Campbell, Martin and Wallis Inquiries all supported the notion of deregulation of the Australian financial system. Many of their recommendations focused on allowing the market to determine market outcomes without jeopardising stability. Reform to the system was expected to provide a number of benefits, including increased competition and efficiency. Due to the limited quantity of quality data, research in this area has been limited. This thesis attempts to address issues that have not been adequately dealt with in the current literature by creating a database of financial bank data and using that data to analyse the effects that deregulation has had on the banking industry with respect to competition, efficiency and overall industry profitability.
