Uncertainty clouds the lending picture

Household and commercial lending are likely to hit a peak in coming months, but a decline in fixed credit facilities for businesses suggests a murky outlook for non-mining investment.

Low interest rates continue to support household and business lending but momentum has slowed considerably during 2014. Lending to owner-occupiers and investors has been largely unchanged over the past few months and is set to ease over the remainder of the year. For businesses, fixed credit facilities have declined for the past three months, raising concerns about the outlook for non-mining investment.
