Deloitte Australian Mortgage Report 2016

Executive Summary

The Australian mortgage market continues to deliver. In October 2015 the total market for outstanding residential mortgages in Australia burst through the $1.5 trillion mark, with annualised lending growth of more than 7% p.a. for 2015. Settlements reached a record of almost $36 billion ($35.95bn) in December 2015 and mortgages continue to account for more than 60% of our major banks’ earnings.


Funding outlook 2016

Funding, and its impact on the Australian residential mortgage market is an area of focus as market participants and commentators analyse whether the slow start to 2016 is a precursor to a tough year ahead. Although the funding markets have come a long way since the financial crisis, access to liquidity is sensitive to global political and economic events. So what was the impact of the events of the last 12 months on mortgage originators, both ADIs and non-bank lenders, and how will this impact both the competitive landscape and consumer over the next year?
