The data: coverage, periodicity, and timeliness

Coverage characteristics

Data was extracted from the "Key Information Summary" part of the disclosure statements published by locally incorporated registered banks until December 2010 and then extracted directly from disclosure statements.

Data series from March 1996 onwards include: Profitability; Peak credit exposure concentrations; Credit rating; Capital adequacy; Size; and Asset quality.

Data included in the table was revised in 2013. A summary balance sheet was added and Peak credit exposure concentrations were removed.




Released during the fourth month after the end of the quarter the disclosure statements were issued for.

Access by the public

Statistics release calendar

The Statistics Release Calendar provides a long-term plan of scheduled releases. It is updated and released on the first working day of the month.

Dissemination of terms and conditions under which official statistics are produced, including confidentiality of individual responses

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand Act 1989 (The Act), Section 81 states, " The Bank shall, from time to time... prescribe the information which...shall be published by all registered banks or any specified class of registered banks."

Read the Reserve Bank of New Zealand Act 1989.

Provision of information about revisions and advance notice of major changes in methodology

Provisional data are italicised. Data are deemed provisional when a series is under review. New data, or revised data, are in bold font. This applies to the summary table only and not excel files. Revisions are generally published when the table is next due to be updated and released. Should revisions need to be made more promptly, a note is posted on the website. Any major changes in methodology are posted on the website as a note.


Dissemination of documentation on methodology and sources used in preparing statistics

A list of the registered banks can be found on our website. The information required in the disclosure statements can be found in the Orders in Council made under The Act.

A list of registered banks is available.

Dissemination of statistics that support statistical cross-checks and provide assurance of reasonableness

Disclosure statements can be found on the websites of registered banks.

Interpretation of the table

The information contained in the table was extracted from the "Key Information Summary" part of the disclosure statements published by registered banks until December 2010 and then directly from the disclosure statements. A review of the tables was made in 2013 and consequently there were changes to the presentation and content of the table from the 30 June 2013 data.

The information relates only to the periods specified in those disclosure statements. The financial position of a bank may have changed subsequent to the publication of its disclosure statements. The disclosure statements also contain other information that may be relevant in interpreting the information contained in the tables. Readers are advised to consult those disclosure statements for comprehensive information about any particular bank.

Format of the table

All locally incorporated banks are listed in table G1, and all overseas incorporated banks (which operate as a branch in New Zealand) are listed in table G2. This is done because it may be misleading to compare locally incorporated banks with overseas incorporated banks. In each section of the table, banks are listed in alphabetical name order.

In the case of overseas incorporated banks, the key information disclosed covers both the New Zealand branch and the bank as a whole. The overseas bank information provided is the most recently published information and is not always for the same date as that provided by the New Zealand branch. In some cases the overseas bank information may be for different dates. The key information disclosed by locally incorporated banks with an overseas parent bank does not include information relating to the overseas parent bank.

The number of decimal places used to disclose quantitative information is not prescribed, and so differs among banks. This has resulted in varying numbers of decimal places appearing in some lines of the table. Some of the numbers disclosed by banks have been rounded in order to improve the consistency of the table.

Contents of the table


From the 30 June 2013, the end of the accounting period is shown at the top of the table while the annual balance date is shown at the bottom.

Up to 31 March 2013 the first block of information in the table lists the annual balance date of each bank, the date of the end of the accounting period to which the information disclosed relates and the number of months in that accounting period. For example a bank may have a balance date of 31 December, and an accounting period ending on 30 June.


From 30 June 2013 the net profit for the New Zealand branch covers the 12 months to the end of the relevant accounting period. Up to 31 March 2013 the net profit for the year-to-date is shown. Net profit over the previous 12 months as a percentage of average total assets is also shown. Profitability for the Overseas Banking Group is year-to-date.

Credit rating

Credit ratings for long-term unsecured obligations payable in New Zealand in New Zealand dollars and the name of the issuer of the rating are disclosed. Some banks have more ratings than those shown in the table. Readers are advised to refer to the banks' disclosure statements for information about additional ratings (if any).

See Standard & Poor's, Moody's and Fitch's websites for explanation of their ratings.


From 30 June 2013 a breakdown of assets is shown for the New Zealand branch. Up to 31 March 2013 only the amount of total assets was shown. The percentage change in total assets over the last 12 months is also shown. Total assets only is shown for the overseas banking group.

Liabilities and equity

From 30 June 2013 a breakdown of liabilities and equity is shown for the New Zealand branch.

Asset quality

The table shows the value those assets that have been identified as impaired and from 30 June 2013 for the New Zealand branch the value of those assets that are 90 days past due that are not considered impaired. The table now also shows the ratio of these two items as a percentage gross lending. Up to 31 March 2013 the table shows impaired assets as a percentage of total assets.

For the Overseas Banking Group the table shows the value of those assets that have been identified as impaired and as a percentage of total assets.

Capital adequacy

The table shows common equity tier one capital ratio (from 31 March 2013, where applicable), tier one capital ratio and total capital ratio, and each of these as a percentage of risk weighted credit exposures for the overseas incorporated bank. Overseas incorporated banks are required to calculate capital and risk weighted credit exposures in accordance with the requirements in their home jurisdiction. These are based on the Basel Capital Accord.

Peak credit exposure concentrations

Up to 31 March 2013 the table shows the peak number of credit exposures over the past quarter to individual customers, or groups of closely related customers. Exposures are calculated as a percentage of equity, and disclosed as the number of exposures within percentage ranges of equity. (Banks are required to disclose peak exposures within 10 percent equity bands. However, some aggregation has been used in the table - readers are advised to refer to the banks' disclosure statements for detailed peak credit exposure concentration information.) Customers are subdivided into banks and non-banks. In the case of banks operating here as branches, the exposures are calculated in relation to the equity of the Overseas Banking Group.


Net profit

From 30 June 2013 the value of the profit earned over the past 12 months to the end of the period. Up to 31 March 2013 it was the value of the profit earned from the beginning of the current accounting period up to the end of the period.

Net profit as a percentage of average assets

Also called return on assets, it is the net profit as a percentage of the average assets over the past 12 months.

Capital – common equity tier one, tier one capital and total capital

Common equity tier one capital is capital that is permanently and freely available to absorb losses without the bank being obliged to cease trading. It generally comprises ordinary share capital and retained earnings but excludes perpetual preference shares which are included in tier one capital. Total capital consists of tier one capital plus other capital (called tier two capital) which can only absorb losses in the event of a winding up (eg, revaluation reserves, redeemable preference shares, subordinated debt), less certain deductions (eg, unrealised revaluation losses). See the Reserve Bank's policy document entitled Capital Adequacy Framework issued in March 2005.

Glossary of terms

Banking group

The banking group consists of the New Zealand business of the registered bank. For overseas incorporated banks this usually comprises the New Zealand branch of the overseas bank and subsidiaries of the parent bank incorporated in New Zealand. For locally incorporated banks the banking group usually comprises the bank and its subsidiaries.

Overseas banking group

The overseas incorporated bank and all other entities included in the group for the purposes of financial reporting in the country of domicile of the overseas bank.

Risk weighted credit exposures

This includes both on-balance sheet exposures (e.g. loans to customers) and off-balance sheet contracts that expose a bank to credit risk (e.g. the provision of guarantees). Exposures are risk weighted according to broad categories of relative credit risk.

Adoption of IFRS

Between 1 January 2005 and 1 July 2007, banks in New Zealand changed accounting standards from New Zealand accounting standards (NZ GAAP) to New Zealand International Financial Reporting Standards (NZ IFRS).  The move to NZ IFRS affects both balance sheet and income data published in the Bank disclosure tables (G) in respect of those banks. Adoption dates for banks registered over the period are listed below.

For Key information summary of locally incorporated banks (G1) and Key information summary of overseas incorporated banks (G2) tables, this reduces the comparability of individual bank data with data for previous periods, for those banks that have adopted NZ IFRS.

For the Summary of selected aggregated financial data (G3), the aggregated balance sheet and income data reported between 2005 and 2007 are a combination of data reported under the two sets of accounting standards. For the 31 December 2005, 92 percent of the total assets of registered banks reported in Table G3 were held by banks using NZ IFRS.

Dates from which banks adopted NZ IFRS are:

Discontinuation of tables

Today the Reserve Bank publishes the December quarter results sourced from the banks’ disclosure statement. This is the last publication of these tables.

The requirement for banks to produce off quarter disclosure statements has been removed. Banks are now required to publish Disclosure statements on a six monthly basis. It will therefore not be possible to produce quarterly aggregated data from disclosure statements.

Read more about the Banking Supervision Handbook and the disclosure Orders in Council.

Alternative sources for aggregated data are:

The G1 table is being replaced by the Bank Financial Strength Dashboard. The release of March 2018 quarter metrics is scheduled for 29 May 2018.
