Assets of Securitisers
As at 31 December 2011, total assets of Australian securitisers were $133.7b, down $1.1b (0.8%) on 30 September 2011.
During the December quarter 2011, the fall in total assets was due primarily to a fall in long-term asset backed bonds (down $1.9b, 50.5%). This fall was partially offset by rises in other loans (up $1.1b, 9.1%) and cash and deposits (up $0.3b, 7.3%).
Mortgage assets, which accounted for 84.6% of total assets, were $113.2b as at 31 December 2011, a fall of $0.1b (0.1%) during the quarter.
Liabilities of Securitisers
As at 31 December 2011, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $133.7b, down $1.1b (0.8%) on 30 September 2011. The fall in total liabilities was due to falls in short-term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $2.5b, 24.7%) and asset backed securities issued overseas (down $2.5b, 10.1%). These falls were partially offset by rises in long-term asset backed securities issued in Australia (up $3.0b, 3.4%) and loans and placements (up $0.5b, 6.5%).
Asset backed securities issued overseas as a proportion of total liabilities fell to 16.3% in the December quarter 2011, down 1.7 percentage points on the September quarter 2011.
