MARCH KEY POINTS


MARCH 2007 COMPARED WITH FEBRUARY 2007:

HOUSING FINANCE FOR OWNER OCCUPATION

  • The total value of owner occupied housing commitments excluding alterations and additions increased by 1.7% (seasonally adjusted), while the trend series rose 1.0%.

PERSONAL FINANCE
  • The seasonally adjusted series for the value of total personal finance commitments fell by 1.0%. This decrease was due to a fall in revolving credit commitments (down 2.3%) more than offsetting an increase in fixed lending commitments (up 0.7%).
  • The trend series for the value of total personal finance rose 0.2% due to a rise in both fixed lending commitments (up 0.2%) and revolving credit commitments (up 0.1%).

COMMERCIAL FINANCE
  • The seasonally adjusted series for the value of total commercial finance commitments fell by 5.0%. This decrease was due to a fall in fixed lending commitments (down 22.7%) more than offsetting an increase in revolving credit commitments (up 21.2%).
  • The trend series for the value of total commercial finance commitments remained virtually unchanged. A rise in revolving credit commitments (up 2.2%) offset a decrease in fixed lending commitments (down 1.2%).

LEASE FINANCE
  • Lease finance commitments (seasonally adjusted) increased by 0.5%. The lease finance trend series rose by 1.5%.
