Update: 5:00PM FINANCIAL deepening is indispensable to economic development, says a quarterly report from ANZ Bank.

It said one of the key problems with analysing credit growth in any economy was that much analysis on simple credit metrics failed to recognise that financial deepening which showed up in the credit growth figures was benign and beneficial to growth.

"We believe that in any assessment of credit growth, particularly for frontier, developing and emerging economies, total credit growth needs to be considered in the context of financial deepening when making a true assessment of its appropriateness," the bank said.
