The bank’s operating income increased 4% from the average of the two quarters of the second half of FY17, due to improved margins.

Statutory net profit for the quarter ended 30 September 2017 stood at AUD2.8bn.

The group’s common equity tier 1 (CET1) APRA ratio stood at 10.1%, while leverage ratio was 5.2% on an APRA basis.

The bank added that its net interest margin was higher in the quarter, due to asset repricing and reduced liquid asset balances.
