Trends in the Funding and Lending Behaviour of Australian Banks
This paper describes the Australian banking system, highlighting ways in which it differs from other major banking systems. It draws together themes from previous work conducted at the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), and outlines the role the banking system plays in the transmission of monetary policy and the transformation of risk. The paper also discusses some more recent trends, including the increased focus on deposit funding and potential changes in the determination of lending rates due to changes in the pricing of risk. These trends are, in turn, being influenced by changes in the preferences towards, and understanding of, different types of risk by investors, banks' management and regulators.
