The continued dominance of the major banks in the mortgage market is expected to help three of the big four post collective half-yearly profits of more than $7.4 billion.
Westpac, ANZ and NAB will give a detailed report of their profits in late April, with Westpac expected to be the standout performer after the lender stunned the market with its preliminary first quarter earnings buoyed by a drop in the number of bad loans written.
Last month, CBA reported first-half cash profit of $2.9 billion for the six months ending 31 December.
Combined, the big four banks’ first-half profits are expected to hit $10.4 billion, 31 per cent higher than the first half of 2009.
According to UBS forecasts, Westpac is expected to post cash profit of approximately $3 billion, while ANZ cash profit is forecasted to be $2.35 billion and NAB’s $2.13 billion.
