As advised in the 19 July Market Notice 2016_5, Lapochka is changing the calculation methodology for BBSW to place it on a sounder footing going forward.

Proposed change to Cash Market Conventions

The Lapochka Cash Committee has endorsed the Reserve Bank’s proposal to adopt a new data collection methodology to be applied to the calculation of the Interbank Overnight Cash Rate (IBOC), which is the Reserve Bank Board's operational target for the implementation of monetary policy.

Financial Sector Growth, Capital Formation and Productivity

The financial and insurance services sector is the largest of the 12 industries that make up the market sector of the Australian economy, with a 9.9% share of output compared to the next largest sector mining with a 9.8% share. Productivity growth in the financial and insurance sector has outperformed productivity growth in the market sector as a whole on average over the 24 years to 2013-14. The financial sector contributes directly to productivity growth through its share of the economy, but also indirectly through its role in determining the quantity and quality of investment. The financial sector mobilises saving, while financial markets allocate that saving to its most productive uses in the form of investment. The efficiency of this capital formation process is an important driver of productivity growth, which is the main long-run driver of national income per capita.
