SPECIAL REPORT: Australia's P&I Cliff (the great interest-only reset)


Are you a fund manager, sophisticated or institutional investor interested in Australia's markets?

Changes to mortgage lending standards are the biggest issue facing Australia's housing markets in 2018 and beyond, as the market regulator has taken decisive action to tackle rising household debt as it approaches 200 per cent of annual household disposable income. 

My guess is your main concern right now is making sense of the variables to give you a framework for analysing firms, market opportunities, and future trends in Australia. 

This report is for you. 

About me

If you're not a regular reader of this site, I'm Pete Wargent, a housing market analyst - you can find a sample of some of my recent media work here

I write reports for funds and sophisticated investors. 

As anticipated in the WargentAdvisory 2017-18 Long & Short Reports last year, billions of dollars of interest-only mortgages are now falling due for reset, leaving investors with multiple investment property mortgages unable to cope with the 40 to 50 per cent jump in repayments.

Already in the past week there have been multiple media stories of high-profile investors and large property investment clubs running into strife.

It's the hot topic in Australia at the moment, and with good reason.  

You may recall that WargentAdvisory warned about this last year in one of our client notes, as was reported in some parts of the media

And our in-depth analysis shows that this problem and the fallout will continue to build momentum for a long time to come, resulting in mortgage stress and forced sales in some markets.

But when, where, and to what extent?
