Assets of Securitisers

At 31 March 2019, total assets of Australian securitisers were $141.2b, up $1.6b (1.2%) on 31 December 2018.


PERCENTAGE CHANGE IN TOTAL ASSETS, from previous quarter


During the March quarter 2019 the rise in total assets was primarily due to an increase in residential mortgages (up $1.2b, 1.0%) and cash and deposits (up $0.3b, 9.5%).

Liabilities of Securitisers

At 31 March 2019, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $141.2b, up $1.6b (1.2%) on 31 December 2018. The increase in total liabilities was due to an increase in long term asset backed securities issued in Australia (up $1.9b, 1.6%). This increase was partially offset by a decrease in asset-backed securities issued overseas (down $0.5b, 12.5%) and loans and placements (down $0.1b, 1.4%).



CHANGE IN LEVEL OF ASSET BACKED SECURITIES, from previous quarter


Asset backed securities issued overseas as a proportion of total liabilities decreased to 2.5%, down 0.4 percentage points on the December quarter 2018 proportion of 2.9%. Asset backed securities issued in Australia as a proportion of total liabilities increased to 91.1%, up 0.4 percentage points on the December quarter 2018 proportion of 90.7%.
