Assets of Securitisers
As at 30 June 2011, total assets of Australian securitisers were $136.8b, up $1.1b (0.8%) on 31 March 2011. This is the first quarterly rise in the assets of Australian securitisers since June 2007, a period of fifteen consecutive quarterly falls.
During the June quarter 2011, the rise in total assets was due primarily to rises in residential mortgages (up $2.5b, 2.3%), other loans (up $0.7b, 5.6%) and cash and deposits (up $0.3b, 8.9%). These increases were partially offset by falls in other assets (down $1.6b, 82.0%) and long term debt securities asset backed bonds (down $0.6b, 8.3%).
Mortgage assets, which accounted for 81.4% of total assets, were $111.3b as at 30 June 2011, a rise of $2.2b (2.0%) during the quarter.
