MARCH KEY POINTS


SUMMARY
  • Total credit market outstandings of the domestic non-financial sectors at 31 March 2010 was $3,662.3b, an increase of $30.5b from the previous quarter. Demand for credit during the quarter was $44.9b and valuation decreases were $14.4b.
  • Demand for credit was down $15.6b from the previous quarter, driven by decreased demand by other private non-financial corporations (down $13.2b) and households (down $6.0b). This was offset by an increase in demand by state and local general government (up $5.9b) and national general government (up $0.6b).


NON-FINANCIAL CORPORATIONS
  • Private non-financial investment funds repaid a net $0.8b. Other private non-financial corporations raised a net $1.0b, mostly funded from share issuance of $9.3b. This was offset by repayment of loans of $10.8b.


GENERAL GOVERNMENT
  • National general government issued bonds of $15.0b.


HOUSEHOLDS
  • Households raised a net $22.0b during the March quarter 2010, down $6.0b from the December quarter 2009 estimate of $28.0b.
