TAKE A LOOK-Australia's financial services sector under scrutiny

Australia's scandal-plagued financial services sector, the country's greatest
contributor to GDP, is engulfed in a year-long misconduct investigation that has
powers to subpoena evidence and question executives of its largest firms. 
    The Royal Commission, as the inquiry is called, began in February, following
a string of scandals involving rate-rigging, money laundering, and unethical
conduct in wealth management and insurance.
