The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) today released a consultation package on the proposed publication of liquidity statistics for authorised deposit-taking institutions (ADIs).
APRA proposes to expand the current statistics published in the Quarterly Authorised Deposit-taking Institutions (ADI) Performance publication to include relevant information on the liquidity of ADIs. APRA proposes to introduce liquidity statistics for banks, and expand the existing liquidity statistics published for credit unions and building societies.
APRA invites submissions on the proposal by 30 March 2016. The consultation package can be found on the APRA website at: www.apra.gov.au/adi/PrudentialFramework/Pages/Consultation-on-the-publication-of-ADI-liquidity-statistics.aspx
