Rising interest rates had the opposite effect on new loans. 

With less property transactions due to the softer market, residential new loan volumes in the Sep-22 qtr shrank 12.0% when compared to the prior quarter and were down 18.6% on the prior year. All states saw double digit drops in new residential loans, with NSW down 26.5% year-on-year.
