Mumbai: The Reserve Bank of India’s status quo on interest rates is becoming increasingly irrelevant, with term premia – the difference between the repo rate and the yield on long-term benchmark bonds – reaching a 12-year high.

The premium is nearly 3%, the highest since 2010. This is driving up borrowing costs for companies that use the yield on 10-year bonds as a benchmark.

The Reserve Bank has kept its benchmark repo rate unchanged at 4% since May 2020. Meanwhile, the benchmark 10-year government bond yield, after remaining in a range between 5.85% and 6 .25% through September 2021, has since risen steadily to around 5.85% now. This translates into a term premium of 2.85%. With yield expected to increase by more than 7% in the next fiscal year, this could increase further.

“This indicates that the pass-through of RBI rate cuts to long-term interest rates remains limited,” said DK Joshi, chief economist at ratings firm Crisil. Investors priced in the fundamental pressures of a large fiscal deficit and high inflation, driving the term premium, he explained.

The RBI has always maintained a dovish stance and a status quo on policy rates, opting to wait for a sustained economic recovery. It did not raise its key rates although consumer price inflation reached the upper limit of the target range of 2 to 6%.

Unlike short-term yields, the benchmark 10-year yield is determined by the market, and while the RBI plays an important influential role, day-to-day movements largely reflect relative demand and market pressures. supply, economists said.

“While it is true that higher government yields will lead to higher corporate borrowing rates, some of them may simply reflect fiscal concerns,” said Rahul Bajoria, chief India economist at Barclays Capital. “In the current environment, where inflation risks are priced on the upside, the surge in term premia is not a big surprise and simply reflects market concerns about inflation,” he said. added.

The policy rate acted as a signaling rate in line with the RBI’s monetary policy stance, while short and medium-term yields moved in line with the central bank’s strategy, particularly the liquidity operation, according to market analysts.

“Term premiums in the interest rate market have been highly skewed across various segments. For example, the term premium between money market and three- to five-year yields has historically been the highest, due to the unprecedented liquidity of the system and the wide corridor between repo and reverse repo,” said Soumyajit Niyogi, Associate Director, Credit and Market Research at India Ratings.

“On the other hand, term premia between 10y and 20y+ are benign, in line with past trend, largely driven by favorable investor demand and the RBI’s twisting of the deal” , he added.

The Progressive Conservative government has proposed legislation to cap provincial borrowing and impose a debt cap on Manitoba Hydro.

On Tuesday, Finance Minister Cameron Friesen introduced Bill 16, the Financial Administration Amendment Act, in a bid to increase financial accountability and reporting.

The legislation would set the provincial government’s borrowing limits at $44.4 billion and cap the debt Manitoba Hydro can carry at $29.3 billion.

Currently, government and departmental borrowing is authorized annually, and incrementally, through the Loans Act and involves a complicated reconciliation process if authorized amounts are not spent, Friesen said.

Under the proposed changes, legislators would set an aggregate borrowing limit for the province and Manitoba Hydro, taking into account current debt, projected operating and capital expenditures over two fiscal years, and a buffer for contingencies.

Hydro, a crown corporation, would be considered separate from government to differentiate taxpayer-backed debt from taxpayer-backed debt, Friesen said.

“That number will be something Manitobans will be able to see,” Friesen said Tuesday. “They can look to and it can provide guidance to governments as we work on things like balancing our books and bringing our books back to stability after the challenges we faced during COVID-19.”

Friesen said the proposed borrowing limit was about 20% higher than the current debt load on the finance department’s recommendation. It provides enough space that emergency debates or other loan applications are not necessary.

Provincial and Manitoba Hydro borrowing limits would also be adjusted annually through the Budget Implementation Act and included in the Estimates documents.

“We think the idea of ​​setting a limit is important,” Friesen said.

The province needs to borrow to operate and it will take at least eight years to balance the budget, he said.

“It acts as a form of accountability to the government. It also provides better transparency for legislators.

He noted that authorized borrowing amounts set aside for contingencies would be held centrally and allocated as needed.

“Current conditions, inflation, geopolitical risk, other factors, these are all things governments need to plan for, but sometimes planning isn’t enough and you need to have that hedge,” Friesen said.

“If something unexpected happened, you would always have the option to go back and say, ‘We think more is needed’, but it creates an open process whereby the legislature would then become responsible for hearing that argument. for more, considerate discuss it and make a decision,” he said.

The province’s current debt is approaching $30 billion while Manitoba Hydro has a debt of $23.5 billion.

The minister said the borrowing limit will not affect Manitoba Hydro’s normal operations or put pressure on the utility to raise rates. The company’s senior management participated in a consultation on borrowing limits, he added.

The bill would require the restoration of detailed budget information, which the Tories were accused of withholding last year.

The legislation would require the government to annually disclose details of each ministry’s spending, including staffing levels, with comparable figures for the previous year. It would also require departments to publish their objectives for the fiscal year and how they will be achieved.

These details are contained in documents called Supplementary Estimates.

New Democrats complained last year when those estimates contained fewer estimates than usual.

“Last year, the Conservatives broke the rules and hid their cuts from Manitobans, but the NDP fought back,” finance critic Mark Wasyliw said in a statement Tuesday.

“Despite this new bill, we know Premier Stefanson and the Conservatives will continue to make secret cuts that hurt families, but you can count on Wab Kinew and the NDP to demand better.”

The province said the federal government and other provinces have also replaced annual loan law appropriations with borrowing authority limits.

The gold lending segment could see moderate growth along with gold prices as well as other funding avenues opening up for borrowers.

Non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) are expected to record 14% year-on-year loan growth in the next financial year on the back of increased demand in the secure asset class segment, India Ratings & Research said in its outlook. for fiscal year 23 for non-banks. bank lenders. The rating agency expects NBFCs to see loan growth of 7-8% in FY22.

Products such as loans against property (LAP) and home and vehicle loans could see higher demand than personal and unsecured business loans which have seen higher demand during the pandemic, he said. he said, adding that growth in the auto finance segment could resume depending on the availability of vehicles facing component shortages. The gold lending segment could see moderate growth along with gold prices as well as other funding avenues opening up for borrowers.

NBFCs would start the year with sufficient capital buffers, stable margins and significant balance sheet provisioning, while adequate system liquidity would facilitate funding. Nonetheless, an expected increase in systemic interest rates and asset quality issues in some segments due to the lagged impact of the pandemic would be a drag on operational performance,” India Ratings said.

The agency expects NBFC Phase 3 assets to grow to 6% by FY23 from 5.6% at the end of December, primarily due to slippages in the restructured and program-supported book Emergency Line of Credit Guarantee (ECLGS). However, the impact on the cost of credit is expected to be moderate as NBFCs have created adequate provisioning reserves. Also, rising interest rates are likely to impact the incremental cost of borrowing for all lenders, he added.

Housing finance companies are expected to grow 13% year-over-year in FY23 due to increasing geographic penetration and a potential increase in loan size, in part due to inflation assets. “India Ratings estimates that the sector could grow by 13% year-on-year in FY23 (FY22: 11%) with Stage 3 raw numbers rising by 2.8% in 3QFY22 (FY22: 2.9 %), largely due to the slippages of the restructured book (FY23: 1.7%; FY22: 2.1%). In addition, 2% of assets under management are backed by loans under the ECLGS , which could also experience slippages. The overall number in Stage 3 could increase by 70 basis points as seen in 3QFY22 due to the change in the NPA recognition standard,” said Ind-Ra, now its “neutral” sector outlook and a “stable” rating outlook for NBFCs and HFCs.

Sources said while the government had a comfortable cash position even without further auctions, it would consider finalizing its planned borrowing if market conditions were appropriate.

“(We) will not commit if this is our last borrowing of the year. We are monitoring yields and will take a call accordingly,” a senior official directly involved in the matter told Reuters.

A second source said the government would be advised to borrow now to take advantage of the relatively lower yields.

The benchmark 10-year yield hit a two-and-a-half-year high of 6.95% after the government announced a record 14.95 trillion rupees to borrow for 2022/23 during the February 1 federal budget.

The yield, however, retraced almost all of its post-budget gains after auction cancellations and is currently at 6.73% as of 06:48 GMT.

India’s finance ministry did not immediately respond to the letter seeking comment.

Although the government cited the official reason for canceling the auction as a comfortable cash balance, sources told Reuters at the time that officials were concerned about the strong market reaction after the announced borrowing plan. .

However, traders warn that further auctions could push yields up again.

“The belief is that we are done with borrowing for this year. If the government decides to borrow for the canceled auctions later, it will cause a lot of pressure on bonds, especially in the current geopolitical environment,” he said. said a senior trader at said foreign bank.

“If we have more auctions this year, yields will likely go back up to 6.95%,” said a private bank trader.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank reported profit of $321 million for the six months to December, up 31% from a year earlier.

The profit surge follows an increase in loans and total income that will deliver an interim dividend of 26.5 cents per share.

The bank gained 70,000 new customers in the six months to the end of 2021 to bring its total customer base to 2.12 million, but its market share fell to 2.36% from 2.41% in June.

Total revenue increased 2.9% to $873.4 million from the same period a year earlier.

Managing Director and CEO Marnie Baker said the result marked the sixth straight six months the bank had seen growth in residential loans.

“The strength of our retail customer franchise is evident in the performance of our consumer bank, which recorded its sixth consecutive half of above-the-system home loan growth, up 8.4% against growth in the 7.6% system,” she said.

“We continue to see strong residential loan flows with settlements in the period up 4.3% from the prior half.

“While fixed rate lending has been an important feature of the mortgage market for most players, including us, more recently there has been a shift to variable rate lending.”

However, overall loan growth lagged behind the system, due to seasonal factors in agribusiness and a decline in the bank’s corporate loan portfolio this half, with total loans increasing by 4.3% vs. 8.3% system growth.

That prompted the bank to announce this month that it would merge its merchant banking and agribusiness divisions to kickstart growth.

Marnie Baker

Last year, Bendigo Bank also acquired Melbourne-based fintech Ferocia to accelerate its digital strategy following the launch of its Up mobile digital banking platform.

“Our acquisition of technology company Ferocia and Australia’s largest mobile-only digital bank, Up, is an important step for the Bank. It strengthens our digital capability and lays the foundation for future growth as we continue to supporting communities across Australia through our community banking model,” Baker said in a statement to shareholders this morning.

“Up has 460,000 customers, many of whom log into the app several times a day. We can see 45,000 of these customers are actively saving for a deposit on a home and we plan to serve these savvy, younger customers with our fully digital Up Home offering later this fiscal year.

The bank has also started divesting what it describes as “non-core assets” and divested the Community Insurance Solutions insurance brokerage business on half.

It has also sold its invoice finance business since the start of the year and says it will make further announcements on disposals “as they occur”.

“We are also continuing the work of modernizing our bank by removing complexity and creating additional capabilities. Our ‘decision time’ has decreased in both our first-party and third-party channels with more improvements to come,” Baker said.

“We have moved 13% of applications to the cloud. Automated decision-making technology is now being applied to third-party home loan applications and will expand over the next 12 months.

“Around 25% of sales are made through digital channels and 66% of customers are active online banking customers.”

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank has a network of 317 branches across Australia with a strong presence in Victoria and South Australia.

He said that while he provided support to 25,000 customers throughout the pandemic, the recent start of the Omicron wave only led to 25 new retail customers requesting help.

The half-year result follows a statutory net profit of $524 million for fiscal year 2020-21, compared to $192.8 million for fiscal year 2020.

Baker said the strong first-half result showed his strategies were working.

“We are committed to eliminating complexity, keeping cost growth low, and most importantly, to remaining a customer-centric organization,” she said.

“Looking forward, we expect residential loan growth to continue to outpace system growth and the seasonal return of agribusiness growth will lead to better short-term loan growth.

“Challenges in the form of margin compression and other one-time revenues are expected to drive revenue down in the second half. Costs will need to come down for us to continue to drive down the cost-to-income ratio.”

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank has a market capitalization of approximately $5.2 billion. The market reacted positively to the news, with shares of the bank rising more than 2% in the first hour of trading on the ASX this morning at $9.47.
