Data from the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority shows that home loan approvals fell by 16.5 per cent year-on-year in the March quarter. The figures also show that the value of mortgage loans written by Australia’s major banks increased by just 2.6 per cent over the last year, compared with growth of eight per cent for customer-owned banks. The total assets of the latter increased by 1.6 per cent quarter-on-quarter, while the assets of the ‘big four’ banks declined by 0.4 per cent.
