    APRA Proposes to Increase Transparency of Banking Data

    September 29, 2020

    APRA announced that it is resuming consultation on the confidentiality of data submitted to APRA by the authorized deposit-taking institutions. To this end, APRA has published a consultation letter proposing a list of key data items to be determined non-confidential and is inviting stakeholder feedback on the consultation by November 20, 2020. APRA intends to publish entity-level data in 2021, with the exception of data on certificates of deposit.

    Earlier, APRA had published, on December 05, 2019, a letter advising that it was proposing to determine data sources for its authorized deposit-taking institution quarterly publications to be non-confidential and to provide an opportunity to the institutions to make submissions on these proposals. However, this consultation had been paused in response to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 outbreak. The December proposal outlined plans to determine that certain data collected for quarterly authorized deposit-taking institution publications should be considered non-confidential, thus allowing it to be published. A common theme in the industry submissions, by authorized deposit-taking institutions, to the December consultation was to break up and slow down the proposed publication of authorized deposit-taking institution data into more manageable stages. In response to this, APRA is now re-consulting on a much shorter list of key authorized deposit-taking institution metrics, sourced almost entirely from the Quarterly Authorized Deposit-taking Institution Performance Statistics (QADIP). The key authorized deposit-taking institution metrics subject to this consultation relate to capital adequacy, liquidity, asset quality, financial statements, and financial performance. 

    APRA also intends to use this publication as a foundation to reduce the burden of disclosure requirements for smaller authorized deposit-taking institutions. As has been consulted on previously, APRA is proposing to reduce the Pillar 3 disclosure burden for smaller institutions. Publication of these key metrics by APRA would be an enabler of this initiative. This proposal, which is outlined in Attachment 1 to the APRA letter, is a major step in improving the transparency of the risk profiles of authorized deposit-taking institutions while Attachment 2 to the letter contains a table of key authorized deposit-taking institution metrics. Publication of these data will assist in providing the public with a centralized and consistent data source on individual institutions.
