During the March quarter 2015, the rise in total assets was due to an increase in residential mortgage assets (up $3.1b, 2.8%) and other loans (up $0.9b, 5.9%). This was partially offset by decreases in cash and deposits (down $0.4b, 9.8%).

Residential and non-residential mortgage assets, which accounted for 83.1% of total assets, were $116.4b at 31 March 2015, an increase of $3.1b (2.7%) during the quarter.

At 31 March 2015, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $140.0b, up $3.5b (2.6%) on 31 December 2014. The rise in total liabilities was due to the increase in long term asset backed securities issued in Australia (up $4.1b, 3.9%) and loans and placements (up $0.7b, 3.5%). This was partially offset by a decrease in short term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $0.6b, 18.8%) and asset backed securities issued overseas (down $0.3b, 3.2%).
