Bank on it: A projected rise in the cash rate is anticipated to boost industry revenue growth

The Banking industry has declined slightly over the past five years due to consistent cuts in the cash rate since June 2015. However, residential housing prices have rapidly risen and the property market has remained strong over the period, boosting the value of industry assets and supporting interest revenue. Concerns regarding an overheated residential property market have been slightly tempered as the Reserve Bank of New Zealand has introduced loan-to-value ratio (LVR) restrictions on mortgage lending. However, these limits were slightly eased in the latest round of changes, which came into effect on 1 January 2018. Industry revenue is expected to decline at an annualised 0.5% over the five years through more.
