Assets of Securitisers
At 31 December 2017, total assets of Australian securitisers were $132.5b, up $7.3b (5.9%) on 30 September 2017.
During the December quarter 2017, the rise in total assets was primarily due to an increase in residential mortgage assets (up $6.0b, 6.0%) and by an increase in other loans assets (up $0.9b, 6.1%).
Liabilities of Securitisers
At 31 December 2017, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $132.5b, up $7.3b (5.9%) on 30 September 2017. The increase in total liabilities was primarily due to an increase in long term asset backed securities issued in Australia (up $8.6b, 8.0%). This was offset by a notable decrease in short term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $1.1b, 22.8%), and loans and placements (down $0.3b, 4.1%).
At 31 December 2017, asset backed securities issued in Australia as a proportion of total liabilities increased to 89.8%, up 0.7 percentage points on the September quarter 2017 proportion of 89.1%. Asset backed securities issued overseas as a proportion of total liabilities decreased to 2.6%, down 0.1 percentage points on the September quarter 2017 proportion of 2.7%.
