The Australian banking sector has a significantly higher ratio of housing mortgage loans/total loans than other OECD countries. Indeed, our bank balance sheet have over 60% residential mortgage loans, and almost another 10% in commercial real estate loans. With increasing regulation of capital and liquidity requirements, and intense competition in the domestic market for retail deposits, access to bank funding has been potentially constrained.

  • To what extent will these changes impact on the supply of home mortgages through the banks?
  • Are there alternative sources of funding or for such purposes?
  • Will the securitisation market make a return to assist with funding?
  • Will superannuation funds play a role?

Speakers include:

  • Chris Dalton, CEO, Australian Securitisation Forum and Managing Director Australia Ratings;
  • Dr Rod Maddock, Adjunct Professor of Economics, Monash University and Vice Chancellor’s Fellow, Victoria University.
  • Phil Naylor, CEO, Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia; and
  • Michael Russell, CEO, Mortgage Choice Limited.

Proudly sponsored by: Mortgage Choice Limited
