Assets of Securitisers
As at 31 December 2010, total assets of Australian securitisers were $138.4b, down $3.2b (2.3%) on 30 September 2010. This is the fourteenth consecutive quarterly fall for the assets of Australian securitisers.
During the December quarter 2010, the fall in total assets was due primarily to falls in other assets (down $2.1b, 47.9%) and residential mortgages (down $1.8b, 1.7%), while other loans rose (up $1.8b, 15.0%).
Mortgage assets, which accounted for 79.4% of total assets, were $109.9b as at 31 December 2010, a fall of $2.4b (2.1%) during the quarter.
Liabilities of Securitisers
The $3.2b decrease in total liabilities during the December quarter 2010 was due primarily to falls in asset backed securities issued overseas (down $4.2b, 13.3%) and short term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $1.2b, 7.0%), while rises were recorded in loans and placements (up $1.2b, 16.4%) and other liabilities to residents (up $1.0b, 21.0%).
