DURING SEPTEMBER QUARTER 2017

During September quarter 2017, financial corporations borrowed a net $36.0b from households, this was primarily through households transactions in net equity in reserves of pension funds ($27.3b), as well as deposits ($24.4b). This was partially offset by loan and placements lending to households ($16.2b).

Financial corporations extinguished net claims with rest of world by $13.0b. This was primarily driven by the repayment of loans that were lent to rest of world ($17.2b).

General government extinguished net claims with financial corporations by $14.7b, primarily driven by the withdrawal of deposits ($23.4b), which was partly offset by less government bond holdings from financial corporations ($9.9b).

General government borrowed a net $8.1b from rest of world, driven by increased bond holdings from rest of world ($10.0b).
