Higher Margin Outlook for Australian Banks, With Loan Repricing Supporting Our Positive Sector View

Nathan Zaia Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Nathan Zaia |

The increases in the Reserve Bank of Australia cash rate to arrest inflation will have an impact on key earnings drivers for the banks. With the cash rate currently at 2.35%, and likely north of 3% by year-end, the increases from just 0.1% in April 2022 have been swift. It is expected to slow credit growth, with less borrowing capacity and confidence (a complete turnaround from the fear-of-missing-out environment of recent years). However, we think bank sector revenue growth will be buoyed by higher net interest margins, with the spread between lending rates and the cost of customer deposits widening.
