Commonwealth Bank Well-Placed to Navigate More Credit Stress and Higher Funding Costs

Commonwealth Bank of Australia is the largest of Australia's four highly profitable, wide-moat-rated major banks. It offers a full suite of banking services in Australia and New Zealand. In the long run, the bank has consistently increased shareholder wealth in favorable economic times. The loan book's large weighting to home loans and the high proportion of customer deposits reduces risk on bad debts and sudden changes to funding costs.
