The NAB has advised its mortgage delinquencies are on the rise.

The ratio of 90+ days past due and gross impaired assets to gross loans and acceptances increased from 0.79% to 0.85%, largely due to rising Australian mortgage delinquencies, it advised today.

The bank said asset quality overall remained broadly sound.

The acting chief Philip Chronican released its third quarter trading update this morning, reporting unaudited statutory net profits of A$1.70bn, and A$1.65bn in unaudited cash earnings – a 1% increase year-over-year.

Revenue also increased, as NAB continues to see robust growth in (SME) small business lending.

But Chronican noted there was a "backdrop of a challenging operating environment, including subdued home lending growth.

He advised the bank's 3Q19 performance compared with the 1H19 quarterly average was "solid," with revenue increasing and costs flat.
