Financial Institutions Performance Survey - Non-banks: Review of 2010 

Proofing against future crunches


Despite pockets of growth, particularly in the export sector, New Zealand’s economic activity is subdued. Faced with uncertainty, businesses and consumers are reluctant to take on new debt and, where possible, keen to repay existing debt.


In the absence of balance sheet growth and constrained earnings due to bad and doubtful debts, the focus for many in the non-bank sector has been on “future proofing” their businesses.

However, surviving the dramatic events of the last three years is still no guarantee of maintaining a long-term position in the market.

The last three years have been a period of fundamental change and rationalisation across the whole sector.


The catalysts were the collapse of the property develop- ment finance companies, domestic recession and flow-on effects of the global financial crisis.
