Banks' shares recorded the largest valuation increase ($42.5b) followed by other private non-financial corporations ($23.0b). These valuation increases for banks and other private non-financial corporations follows two consecutive falls recorded in June quarter 2015 and September quarter 2015.

Net transactions in the loan market were $30.7b in December quarter 2015, driven by long term loans ($37.6b) as household ($26.4) and other private non-financial corporations ($10.2b) incurred loan borrowings from banks. Short term loans partially offset the net positive transactions in long term loans with net repayments of $6.9b.

Bonds decreased $10.0b with net transactions of $28.4b offset by revaluations of -$38.4b in December quarter 2015. Net transactions in bonds were driven by net issuances by banks ($12.4b) and national general government ($8.4b).The negative revaluations were driven by banks (-$16.2b) and other private non-financial corporations (-$8.9b); the largest negative revaluation since December 2010 for banks and September 2006 for other private non-financial corporations.
