Assets of Securitisers
As at 31 March 2010, total assets of Australian securitisers were $154.2b, down $6.6b (4.1%) on December quarter 2009. This is the eleventh consecutive quarterly fall for the assets of Australian securitisers.
Mortgage assets, which accounted for 79.3% of total assets, were $122.3b at 31 March 2010, a decrease of $2.8b (2.3%) during the quarter.
During the March quarter 2010, the decrease in total assets was due primarily to falls in residential mortgages (down $2.4b, 2.0%), the holdings of long term securities, asset backed bonds (down $1.7b, 15.0%) and the holdings of other loans (down $1.3b, 9.4%).
Liabilities of Securitisers
The $6.6b decrease in total liabilities during the March quarter 2010 was primarily due to falls in asset backed securities issued overseas (down $4.9b, 11.5%) and short term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $1.6b, 7.7%).
Asset backed securities issued overseas as a proportion of total liabilities decreased to 24.7% in the March quarter 2010, down 2.1 percentage points on December quarter 2009.
Asset backed securities issued domestically as a proportion of total liabilities increased to 68.2% in the March quarter 2010, up 2.0 percentage points on December quarter 2009.
