Assets of Securitisers
At 31 December 2018, total assets of Australian securitisers were $139.9b, up $4.8b (3.5%) on 30 September 2018.
During the December quarter 2018 the rise in total assets was primarily due to an increase in residential mortgages (up $4.1b, 3.8%) and other loans (up $0.5b, 3.3%). This increase was partially offset by a decrease in cash and deposits (down $0.1b, 3.8%) and other assets (down $0.1b, 12.1%).
Liabilities of Securitisers
At 31 December 2018, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $139.9b, up $4.8b (3.5%) on 30 September 2018. The increase in total liabilities was due to an increase in long term asset backed securities issued in Australia (up $2.9b, 2.4%), asset-backed securities issued overseas (up $1.3b, 44.1%) and loans and placements (up $0.4b, 6.2%).
Asset backed securities issued overseas as a proportion of total liabilities increased to 3.1%, up 0.9 percentage points on the September quarter 2018 proportion of 2.2%.
