APRA has released the quarterly performance statistics for banks, credit unions and building societies for March 2010. Due to the market sensitivity of the profit information of listed banks, statistics are not made available until no earlier than four months after the end of the relevant reporting period.
The statistics are available in both pdf and Excel formats.
The statistics reveal some interesting trends - the net after-tax profit for building societies and credit unions (when taken together) for year end March 2010 increased by 16% from March 2009. However, the net after-tax profit for all banks for year end March 2010 decreased by 5% from March 2009.
