New Zealand June 20 ANZ Business Outlook beats prior


The Business Confidence released by the ANZ shows the business outlook in New Zealand has beaten the prior as follows:

  • New Zealand business confidence -34.4% in June vs 41.8% – ANZ bank survey.
  •  New Zealand business own activity outlook -25.9% vs -38.7% prior – ANZ survey.

A vigorous bounce out of lockdown is evident in the numbers, but the levels are consistent with our view that the recession is just starting.

Headline business confidence stabilised over June, similar to the preliminary read at -34%.

A net 26% of firms expect a weaker activity for their own business, a further 3 point improvement, approaching levels typically seen in a recession.

Retail sector expected activity bounced a lot – construction is now the most negative as regards expected activity, though their outlook improved as the month went on.
