Australian Retail Deposits-Forecasts and Opportunities

(AsiaNewsWire.Net, September 14, 2017 ) "Australian Retail Deposits: Forecasts and Opportunities", report examines the retail deposit market in Australia, analyzing how market forces will influence customers' ability and willingness to save, what impact new products, innovations, and strategies will have on the savings market, and consumer attitudes towards saving and personal finance.

The retail deposit market in Australia has had years of strong growth, surpassing A$1tn for the first time at the end of 2016. Growth is slowing in the market as under-employment, low wage inflation, and low APRs have taken their toll, and these factors will continue to constrain growth in the near future. Sharper targeting of those consumers with the fastest-growing deposit values, such as the over-65s, is therefore required to ensure adequate funding of retail banks' balance sheets.
