During the December quarter 2014, the rise in total assets was due to an increase in residential mortgage assets (up $5.2b, 4.9%) and cash and deposits (up $0.3b, 7.1%). This was partially offset by decreases in other loans (down $0.6b, 3.9%).

Residential and non-residential mortgage assets, which accounted for 83.0% of total assets, were $113.3b at 31 December 2014, an increase of $5.2b (4.8%) during the quarter.

At 31 December 2014, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $136.5b, up $4.8b (3.6%) on 30 September 2014.
