Assets of Securitisers
As at 30 September 2010, total assets of Australian securitisers were $141.6b, down $5.2b (3.5%) on 30 June 2010. This is the thirteenth consecutive quarterly fall for the assets of Australian securitisers.
Mortgage assets, which accounted for 79.3% of total assets, were $112.3b at 30 September 2010, a fall of $4.0b (3.5%) during the quarter.
During the September quarter 2010, the fall in total assets was due primarily to falls in residential mortgages (down $3.3b, 3.0%), the holdings of long term securities, asset backed bonds (down $1.3b, 13.6%), and non-residential mortgages (down $0.7b, 17.6%), while other assets rose (up $1.0b, 30.3%).
Liabilities of Securitisers
The $5.2b decrease in total liabilities during the September quarter 2010 was due primarily to falls in asset backed securities issued overseas (down $3.7b, 10.4%) and short term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $2.3b, 12.3%).
Asset backed securities issued overseas as a proportion of total liabilities fell to 22.6% in the September quarter 2010, down 1.8 percentage points on the June quarter 2010.
Asset backed securities issued domestically as a proportion of total liabilities rose to 68.8% in the September quarter 2010, up 0.4 percentage points on the June quarter 2010.
