Assets of Securitisers
At 31 March 2018, total assets of Australian securitisers were $132.7b, up $0.2b (0.2%) on 31 December 2017.
During the March quarter 2018, the rise in total assets was primarily due to an increase in residential mortgage assets (up $1.0b, 0.9%), Credit card loans and trade receivables assets (up $0.7b, 21.3%) and Non-residential mortgage loans assets (up $0.2b, 12.4%). This increase was largely offset by a decrease in Other Loans assets (down $1.9b, 11.9%).
Liabilities of Securitisers
At 31 March 2018, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $132.7b, up $0.2b (0.2%) on 31 December 2017. The increase in total liabilities was primarily due to an increase in loans and placements (up $0.6b, 7.9%). This was offset by a notable decrease in long term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $0.4b, 0.4%).
CHANGE IN LEVEL OF ASSET BACKED SECURITIES, from previous quarter
Asset backed securities issued overseas as a proportion of total liabilities decreased to 2.1%, down 0.2 percentage points on the December quarter 2017 proportion of 2.3%.
