Keywords: Financial Regulation, Twin Peaks, Australian Prudential Regulation Authority, Australian Securities and Investments Commission This paper is part of a series of discussion papers examining various aspects of Australia`s financial regulatory system and the relevance of Australia`s experience to reforms in other countries. From a general perspective describing the context in which the system operates in Australia, it examines the anatomy of the twin peak model as it exists in Australia from a legal and regulatory perspective, and how it addresses fundamental regulatory issues. The Twin Peaks system has a functional structure. Financial regulatory functions are grouped into two regulatory bodies: the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, which is responsible for company regulation, market behaviour and consumer protection, and the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority, which is responsible for prudential regulation. Under this model, the central bank, the Reserve Bank of Australia, remains responsible for monetary policy and financial stability, including ensuring a safe and reliable payment system. The other two models to which the twin peaks model is generally compared are the institutional model, where the different sectors – namely banking, insurance and securities – are supervised by different regulators, and the integrated model, where supervision is consolidated into a single integrated regulator or “super-regulator”, as was previously the case in the UK. before adopting the twin tips model.

The relevance of the twin peak model is increasing as more jurisdictions have adopted or are considering doing so. It has also attracted more recent interest in Australia in the context of the 2014 Financial System Survey, which examined the Australian financial system and examined many issues relevant to the functioning of the Twin Peaks model in Australia.

Twin Peaks (and similar restaurants) operate under a loophole called “true job qualification,” which allows them to ignore little things like the American Civil Rights Act of 1964 and freely discriminate against things like age, gender, and appearance as long as it`s “reasonably necessary” to run their business. Employees of many “mammaaurants” are not hired as waiters, bartenders or hosts, but as “actors or performers” and, as such, may write subjective standards for appearance, weight, makeup, hairstyle, breast size, body fat percentage and uniform in their employment contracts.

In November 2010, Twin Peaks` parent company (Twin Restaurant IP LLC) charged Kevin Laughlin, owner of Grand Tetons LLC DBA Northern Exposure, with trademark infringement.

In 2011, rival pioneering chain Hooters sued Twin Peaks co-founder Joseph Hummel, a former executive of the “deliciously sticky but unrefined” restaurant chain. Hummel left Hooters to develop and launch Twin Peaks, and it seems he took some “trade secrets” with him when he left his former employer to start his new business. The lawsuit was settled out of court in 2012, with neither company admitting wrongdoing and no financial compensation paid.
