Data from UBS shows that Australia’s major banks account for 79 per cent of existing mortgage loans. However, Jon Mott of UBS says their share of new home loans is likely to keep falling as the trend toward alternatives such as mortgage brokers gathers pace. UBS also notes that the proportion of home loans that are sold via bank branches has fallen from 48 per cent in fiscal 2013 to just 37 per cent. Mott notes that the major banks’ aggressive push to close bank branches in recent years has contributed to the growing use of mortgage brokers.
