Abstract

This study considers the time series relationship between bank non interest income and bank net interest margins in Australia using panel vector auto regressions. It is found that increases in bank non interest income are being used to supplement decreases in net interest margins, but that the magnitude of the increase in non interest income is smaller than the decrease in net interest margins. Thus, consumers of bank products are overall better off as a result of this process, but not necessarily every consumer group. The agency risks of increased bank non interest income are explored from the perspectives of regulators, bank
shareholders, borrowers and bank management.
