APRA vision, mission and values
is to be a world-class prudential regulator, with excellence of supervision as | our foundation.
Our core mission
is to establish and enforce prudential standards and practices designed to ensure that, under all reasonable circumstances, financial promises made by institutions we supervise are met within a stable, efficient and competitive financial system.
We also act as a national statistical agency for the Australian financial sector.
underpin the critical role we play in protecting the financial well-being of the Australian community. High standards are required in everything we do. In our work and in our interactions with others, we value and seek to demonstrate integrity, collaboration, professionalism, foresight and accountability.
Our supervisory approach
is forward-looking, primarily risk-based, consultative, consistent and in line with international best practice. The approach also recognises that management and boards of supervised institutions are primarily responsible for financial soundness.
