As at 31 December 2009, total assets of Australian securitisers were $161.0b, down $13.1b (7.5%) on September quarter 2009. This is the tenth consecutive quarterly fall for the assets of Australian securitisers.
Mortgage assets, which accounted for 77.9% of total assets, were $125.4b at 31 December 2009, a decrease of $9.4b (7.0%) during the quarter.
During the December quarter 2009 the decrease in total assets was due primarily to falls in residential mortgages (down $8.9b, 6.9%) and the holdings of long term securities, asset backed bonds (down $2.7b, 19.4%).
Liabilities of Securitisers
The $13.1b decrease in total liabilities during the December quarter 2009 was primarily due to decreases in asset backed securities issued overseas (down $6.2b, 12.6%), long term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $3.0b, 3.4%) and short term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $2.4b, 10.2%).
