Liabilities of Securitisers
As at 31 March 2012, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $128.0b, down $5.6b (4.2%) on 31 December 2011. The fall in total liabilities was due to falls in long-term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $5.0b, 5.4%) and asset backed securities issued overseas (down $1.4b, 6.7%). These falls were partially offset by a rise in loans and placements ($0.8b, 9.8%).
