National investment falls in September quarter

National investment decreased by $5.1b to $110.5b this quarter.

Download

The general government sector invested $16.7b over the quarter, down from $23.8b in June. A fall is typical for the September quarter.

Household investment decreased by $0.5b, falling to $38.4b overall. This was driven by declines in machinery and equipment and dwelling investment, partly offset by an increase in ownership transfer costs.

Private non-financial corporations investment increased by $3.5b this quarter to $46.5b. This was driven by a build up of inventories leading into the Christmas period.

​​​​​​​Australia continues to be a net lender

National net lending was $7.7b in September quarter 2019 as gross saving of $119.1b was used to fund national investment.

During the quarter, residents acquired $19.7b of shares and other equity issued by the rest of world, with non-money market financial investment funds and pension funds acquiring $11.3b and $8.2b respectively. The rest of the world borrowed $20.9b in loans from domestic authorised deposit taking institutions (ADIs).

ADIs settled $20.9b of their derivative contracts with rest of the world. The rest of the world acquired $17.4b of shares and other equity issued by residents.

Download

Non-financial corporations were net borrowers of $7.7b, driven by loan borrowings ($17.6b) and issuance of equity ($4.8b) partly offset by maturities of $3.7b in debt securities.

The general government was a net borrower of $17.9b, driven by issuances of long term debt securities ($11.8b) and loan borrowings ($9.3b).

Households were net lenders of $54.3b, depositing $23.8b and accruing $16.1b in net equity in reserves of pension funds (superannuation).

Household wealth

Household net worth (wealth) increased $318.0b (3.0%) in September quarter 2019, driven by a $322.3b increase in total assets, partly offset by a $4.3b increase in total liabilities.

The increase in total assets was driven by residential land and dwellings. The value of residential land and dwellings increased 2.9%, driven by total holding gains of $174.4b. This represents the first quarter of real holding gains on residential land and dwellings following six consecutive quarters of losses.

Household wealth per capita has increased $10,698.6 to $428,573.5, the largest increase since December 2016. With quarterly growth in household wealth at its highest in nearly two years, through the year growth in household wealth has made a recovery from the negative results seen over the 2018-19 year.

The value of household financial assets increased 2.3%, a moderate result relative to the record growth in the previous two quarters. This reflects smaller holding gains on financial assets, while net financial transactions were steady. While holdings in pension fund assets are at a high of 55.6% of total household financial assets, the share of deposits remain at a nine year low of 19.5%. This is in line with record low interest rates as the RBA board reduced the cash rate a further 25 basis points at its July meeting, following a 25 basis point cut in June.

Download

The growth in financial asset was driven by superannuation assets, which are made up of reserves of pension funds and unfunded superannuation claims. Reserves of pension funds increased $68.3b, of which $52.2b were due to positive revaluations as 77.1% of reserve assets were invested in shares, and therefore influenced by the performance the Australian stock market.

Household liabilities grew 0.2% and is the softest growth since March quarter 1993. Total household sector liabilities were $2,471.7b, 92% of which were long term loans. The growth in long term loans of 0.3% was due to weakness in owner occupier loans, and falls in investor, unincorporated business and fixed term loans.

Long term loans by authorised deposit taking institutions (ADIs) and securitisers made up $3.3b of the transactions of the long term loans. Net transactions in long term loans from rest of world (-$2.0b) detracted from growth. Short term loan borrowing by households decreased 2.3%, with net transactions of -$18b driven by households paying off their short term loans with ADIs. Net transactions in short term loans borrowed from ADIs is the strongest negative result for a September quarter in five years.

Household transactions in net worth were $61.8b. Financial transactions were the largest component contributing $54.1b, driven by a net acquisition of financial assets of $53.5b, and partly offset by a net incurrence of liabilities of -$0.6b. Net capital formation contributed $7.7b to household transactions in net worth and was driven by land and dwellings ($9.4b), partly offset by other non-financial assets (-$1.7b).

Household debt to assets ratios

The household debt to assets ratio gives an indication of the extent to which the overall household balance sheet is geared. The household debt to assets ratio decreased from 18.9 to 18.5, as growth in household assets (2.5%) outgrew household debt (0.2%).

The mortgage debt to residential land and dwellings ratio decreased from 29.2 to 28.6, indicating the value of residential land and dwellings outgrew mortgage debt. The decrease in the ratio is driven by the strongest increase in the value of residential land and dwellings since December quarter 2016, combined with the weakest growth in mortgage debt since September quarter 2013.

The household debt to liquid assets ratio reflects the ability of households to quickly extinguish debts using liquid assets (currency and deposits, short and long term debt securities, and equity). The household debt to liquid asset ratio decreased from 112.0 to 110.0, as growth in household liquid assets (2.1%) outweighed growth in household debt (0.2%). Growth in liquid assets was driven by increases in household deposit assets which contributed 1.1 percentage points to the 2.1% increase. Growth in household debt was weak, driven by a 0.3% increase in long term loan borrowing.

The wealth effect

Household net saving increased from -$3.3b to $10.7b in September quarter 2019. The $13.9b increase was driven by an increase in gross disposable income ($45.5b), partly offset by increases in final consumption expenditure ($3.6b) and consumption of fixed capital ($0.3b). The increase in gross disposable income was driven by a $11.9b increase in dividends received and a $23.5b decrease in income tax payable.

Household gross disposable income adjusted for other changes in real net wealth (wealth effect) increased from $467.6b to $529.2b and household net saving adjusted for other changes in real net wealth increased from $165.1b to $222.8b. The increases in gross disposable income and household net saving when adjusted for other changes in net wealth are due to total real holding gains of $181.1b, the strongest result since March quarter 2017.

Demand for credit

Demand for credit ($42.8b) continued to slow this quarter, following 2018-19 which had the weakest annual demand for credit since 2012-13. Demand for credit this quarter was driven by the public sector, with subdued demand by the private sector and households. Households' demand for credit (-$1.3b) was negative for the first time since March quarter 1993. Net bond issuances by National general government were $12.1b, while state and local general government borrowed $8.9b. While other private non-financial corporations borrowed $10.4b, equity raising by the sector was only $1.0b.

Demand for credit by household continues to be impacted by the slowing growth in loans for residential property, reflecting the weak housing market. Households transactions in loans were negative for the first time since December quarter 2014, with $12.2b of household loans being securitised. Growth in owner occupier loan balances continued to soften, while investor loans balances fell. Household short term loan balances also continued to drop.

Demand for credit by other private non-financial corporations was the second weakest demand in 7 years ( first being December 2018). This is in line with the lowest equity raising by the sector since December quarter 2012. National general government's demand for credit was the highest since June quarter 2017, corresponding with a strong increase in net bond issuances this quarter. State and local general government's demand for credit was the highest since June quarter 2012, driven by loans from central borrowing authorities, with the sector's credit demand over the past year the strongest since 2012.

Valuations increases in bonds and equities drive credit market outstanding

Despite subdued demand for credit over the past year, significant valuation increases have pushed through the year growth in credit market outstanding of non-financial domestic sectors to 5.7%. Strong price increases in the Australian stock market and falling bond yields, particularly over the last 3 quarters, were the main contributors to the growth.

Credit market outstanding rose 1.3% this quarter, following last quarter’s 2.3% increase. There were significant valuation increases in the equity of other private non-financial corporations and government bonds, reflecting the rise in the Australian stock market and falling bond yields during the quarter.

Strong growth in the deposits market

The deposits market grew 2.1% due mainly to a strong increase in households' transferable deposits ($26.6b) and offset partly by a decrease ($2.2b) in other deposits of households.

Download

Other notable events in financial markets during the quarter include:

  • growth in the derivatives market was 18% due to strong revaluation gains ($182.7b)
  • the long term loan market experienced subdued growth of 1.3% driven by other private non-financial corporations (1.4%), while household long-term loan growth was weak (0.3%)
  • positive revaluation gains in other private non-financial corporation shares ($15.6b) and authorised deposit taking institution shares ($12.0b) drove growth in the listed shares and other equity market (2.1%).

Sectoral analysis

Private non-financial corporations

Debt to equity ratio decreased

Private non-financial corporations’ investment in fixed assets was funded predominantly through gross savings ($31.4b), and the sector returned to become a net borrower ($2.4b). The net borrowing position was a result of net incurrence of liabilities ($26.7b) outweighing acquisition of financial assets ($24.3b). The increase in financial assets was driven by accounts receivable ($12.1b) and deposits with authorised deposit taking institutions ($8.7b).

The debt to equity ratio adjusted for price changes rose slightly from 0.71 to 0.72. The ratio had been declining since March quarter 2016 but steadied over 2018-19 indicating the 'real' level of debt to equity for private non-financial corporations has stabilised. On a non-adjusted basis, the debt to equity ratio remained stable at 0.51. The non-adjusted ratio tends to be more volatile due to the impact of valuation changes in shares and other equity.

Download

Private non-financial corporations' funding through debt and equity shifted this quarter, with the sector seeking the majority of funding through the debt market ($21.9b) rather than the equity market ($4.8b). The largest debt borrowing were loans and placements borrowed from authorised deposit taking institutions (ADIs) ($7.9b).

The $169.6b increase in financial corporations' assets was driven by increases in shares and other equity ($60.0b), derivatives ($49.2b) and loans and placements ($48.4b), while the $203.1b increase in liabilities was driven by revaluations in derivatives ($76.9b) and acceptance of deposits ($31.2b).

Authorised deposit taking institutions deposit funding decreases

ADIs largest funding source, deposits, decreased to 57.7% this quarter, the lowest it has been since June quarter 2016, partly reflecting record low interest rates. Funding through equity remained steady at 14.2%, financing through short-term debt securities continued to decline, falling this quarter to 7.4%, and funding through long-term debt securities fell slightly to 13.2%.

Download

Household loan balances continued to slow

Growth in long term loans to households continues to slow, reflecting tighter lending conditions and a recovering but still weak housing market. Long term loans from ADIs and securitisers to households increased $3.3b this quarter. The increase was driven by strength in lending to households from securitisers, which increased $11.4b, mostly driven by internal securitisation. Balances of ADIs' long term loans to households decreased (-$8.1b) for the first time since December quarter 2014, as households paid off debt this quarter. Through the year growth in long term loan balances has fallen to a new historic low of 2.9%.

Both ADIs and securitisers need to be considered when assessing movements in loans assets of ADIs. Securitisers are trusts or corporations that pool various types of assets, such as property loans or credit card debt, and package them as collateral backing for bonds or short-term debt securities. Graph 4 includes both 'on market' and internal securitisation. 'On market' securitisation is used by ADIs as a way to move loan assets off their balance sheets to fund their lending business, while the purpose of internal securitisation is to use the securities as collateral with the RBA in its repurchase agreement program.

Download

Superannuation assets continue to rise

Pension fund (superannuation) assets rose $62.9b driven by valuation increases in shares and other equity ($42.8b) which remain the largest financial asset held by pension funds (77.1%).

Download

Pensions funds are also indirectly exposed to equities and debt securities through non-money market financial investment funds (NMMF). Pension funds holdings in NMMF equity represent 42.7% of their total investment in equities. This quarter NMMF held $672.2b in shares and other equity (66.2% of total financial assets) and $238.2b in debt securities (23.5% of total financial assets).

Households claims on net equity in reserves of superannuation (pension funds) was $2,622.8b at the end of the quarter.

General government

National general government debt issuance increases for the second consecutive quarter

Net issuance increased $12.3b this quarter. Despite this, annual growth to September quarter remains at historically low levels post the global financial crisis and is driven by national general government gross saving remaining high. The majority of bond issuances this quarter was purchased by the rest of the world ($13.0b) and ADIs ($6.3b), offset by repurchase agreement activity by the central bank (-$5.3b) and maturities of bonds held by non-money market investment funds ($3.7b).

Total liabilities increased $32.9b, as falling bonds yields resulted in large valuation increases for a third consecutive quarter.

Download

State and local general government continue to borrow for capital investment

State and local general government continued to borrow this quarter, with long term loan borrowings in 2019 the highest since 2012-13, partly reflecting increased financing requirements with strong capital investment on infrastructure through the year. Balances of loans and placements with central borrowing authorities grew 18% through the year, with September quarter 2019 increasing 6.0% ($9.3b). The rise this quarter follows loan borrowings from central borrowing authorities of $6.6b in June quarter 2019 and $4.5b in March quarter.

Rest of world

Rest of world continues to borrow from Australia

The net financial position of rest of world at the end of September 2019 was $976.0b. This $22.0b decrease from the previous quarter was due to valuation decreases of $14.2b and net transactions (net change in financial position) of -$7.7b, resulting in the second consecutive quarter of net lending by Australia.

Rest of word investment in Australia was low, recording just $74m in transactions with valuations making up most of the movement ($114.8b), resulting in an increase in rest of world holdings of Australian assets to $3,954.0b. The weakness in transactions was driven by settlements of derivative contracts with domestic ADIs. The valuation increases to rest of world assets were driven by long term debt securities.

Rest of world increased their liabilities to Australia, recording transactions of $7.8b and valuations of $129.1b, resulting in a total of $2,978.1b in liabilities to Australian residents. Positive transactions were driven by loans, equity and accounts payable, partly offset by settlements of derivative contracts and maturity of one name paper issued offshore. The valuation increase was driven by long term debt securities, derivatives and unlisted equity.

​​​​​​​Australia increases its net lending

Australia recorded its second consecutive quarter of net lending following 44 years as a net borrower. Australia's net lending increased by $3.2b this quarter to $7.7b. The ratio of net lending to GDP increased to 1.5%.

Download

At the sector level, households transitioned from being a net borrower to a net lender this quarter. This was driven by an increase in net saving, which was impacted by the Low and Middle Income Tax Offset (LMITO) policy. The general government sector saw a corresponding decline in net saving and an increase in net borrowing.

Non-financial corporations net borrowing declined by $2.7b, driven by private non-financial corporations. Private non-financial corporations became net lenders this quarter following an increase in net saving and a fall in gross fixed capital formation.

National capital investment as a proportion of GDP falls to a historical low

National capital investment fell to 22.4% as a proportion of GDP this quarter, continuing its downward trend since December quarter 2017. This is the lowest level in the history of the series.

Non-financial corporations investment as a proportion of GDP declined from 10.3% to 10.1%. This is the eighth consecutive quarterly decline and reflects the transition of mining from the investment to the production phase. Weakness in machinery and equipment investment also contributed to the fall this quarter.

Investment by households fell from 7.9% to 7.8% as a proportion of GDP. The downward trend in this ratio reflects weaker dwelling investment.

Changes to this issue

As part of its role as the statistical agency for the financial sector, the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) collects data from financial institutions, including banks, for the ABS and the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA). Some of the forms used to collect this data and used in this publication haven’t been updated since they were first introduced back in 2002.

Over the past few years, APRA, the ABS and the RBA have worked with banks and other financial institutions to modernise the set of forms and these institutions have adapted their infrastructure to report on the new forms. The new set of forms is called the Economic and Financial Statistics (EFS) collection.

The changes in the new EFS collection include:

  • collecting much more detailed data on loan and deposit balances
  • using the most up to date classifications available for economic sectors
  • using definitions that align with current international standards for economic statistics.
     

For more information on the changes due to the implementation of EFS collection, including the time series spreadsheets and associated series identifiers, see Information paper: Product changes to the Australian National Accounts: Finance and Wealth (cat. no. 5232.0.55.005).

Revisions in this issue

This issue contains revisions to the original estimates of the capital accounts back to September quarter 2015 and concurrent seasonal adjustment.

The revisions to the financial accounts and balance sheets are back to June quarter 1988 and are a result of implementation of the quality assurance work undertaken for the historical revision through reviews of compilation methods and through source data provided to the ABS. Revisions have been applied to all financial instruments and sectors for the entire time series:

  • the most significant change to source data was from the new set of forms for EFS which collects data from Authorised Deposit taking Institutions and Registered Financial Corporations.
  • for more detail on the quality assurance work, please refer to the Technical Note in this issue.
     

Changes in future issues

Following ongoing quality assurance work a number of data quality issues have been identified with Table 53. Nominal Value of Short Term Loans and Placements Market ($ million) and Table 54. Nominal Value of Long Term Loans and Placements Market ($ million). These tables will be available in the December quarter 2019 release. However, Table 45. The Short Term Loans and Placements Market ($ million) and Table 46. The Long Term Loans and Placements Market ($ million), which are on a market value basis, are available.
