Dramatic fall in investor lending: APRA stats

Reporter 5 minute read

New data from APRA shows that its crackdown on investor lending may be working.

APRA’s latest monthly banking statistics, for April, have revealed that 10 third-party banks grew their investor volumes by more than 10 per cent over the year.

One of the “specific areas of prudential concern” that APRA identified in December was lenders increasing their investor volumes by more than 10 per cent per annum, which would translate to 0.83 per cent per month.

According to APRA, Macquarie Bank grew its investor volumes by 74.8 per cent over the year, to $7.9 billion.

However, in a possible sign that banks are heeding APRA’s warning, Macquarie’s monthly growth was only 2.2 per cent.

Another three of the 10 banks reported monthly growth of less than 0.83 per cent, which may be another sign of APRA’s influence.

Westpac wrote $149.8 billion of investor loans in April, which marked a 10.3 per cent annual rise but only a 0.7 per cent monthly rise.

ANZ’s investor lending reached $59.8 billion over the month, which was up 10.5 per cent annually but only 0.8 per cent monthly.

Suncorp Bank provided $12.3 billion of investor loans – up 12.1 per cent over the year but only 0.6 per cent over the month.
