REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE
Incorporation of the latest survey data has resulted in revisions to estimates for September quarter 2007. Revisions were made to Other liabilities residents and Other liabilities non-residents.
Assets of Securitisers
At the end of the December quarter 2007, total assets of Australian securitisers were $260.4b, down $12.0b (4.4%) on the September quarter 2007 total, falling for the second consecutive quarter. The falls recorded in September and December quarters 2007 were the first recorded since June quarter 1995.
Mortgage assets, which accounted for 76.6% of total assets, were $199.4b at 31 December 2007, a decrease of $13.9b (6.5%) during the quarter.
Liabilities of Securitisers
The decrease of $12.0b in total liabilities during the December quarter 2007 was due to a decrease in Long term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $10.2b, 7.9%), asset backed securities issued overseas (down $6.0b, 7.1%) and Other liabilities non-residents (down $2.9b, 48.4%), while Short term asset backed securities issued in Australia increased (up $6.7b, 17.2%).
Asset backed securities issued overseas fell to 30.2% of total liabilities in the December quarter 2007, down 0.9 percentage points on September quarter 2007.
