Global credit agency, Moody’s, has downgraded its rating outlook for Australia’s big four banks from stable to negative, claiming margin pressure will erode profitability

    They can thank APRA.
    The restrictions of them having to hold more capital, has reduced/affected their profitability.
    APRA want them to hold more capital to make them more stable, yet it makes them less profitable, and hence they get a Moody's downgrade - which can make their efforts to get more capital, more expensive.......and all the time the customer pays.
    Nice one APRA.
