Assets of Securitisers
As at 31 March 2013, total assets of Australian securitisers were $125.8b, up $0.6b (0.5%) on 31 December 2012.
During the March quarter 2013, the rise in total assets was due primarily to rises in residential mortgage loans (up $1.8b, 1.8%). This was partially offset by the falls in other loans (down $0.8b, 6.0%), non-residential mortgage loans (down $0.2b, 12.5%), credit card loans and receivables (down $0.1b, 17.5%), other assets (down $0.1b, 13.8%) and cash and deposits (down $0.1b, 1.3%).
Mortgage assets, which accounted for 84.5% of total assets, were $106.3b as at 31 March 2013, a rise of $1.6b (1.5%) during the quarter.
Liabilities of Securitisers
As at 31 March 2013, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $125.8b, up $0.6b (0.5%) on 31 December 2012. The rise in total liabilities was due to rises in long-term asset backed securities issued in Australia (up $1.5b, 1.8%) and loans and placements (up $1.2b, 11.7%). These were partially offset by the falls in asset backed securities issued overseas (down $1.0b, 6.6%) and short-term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $1.0b, 13.7%).
As at 31 March 2013, asset backed securities issued overseas as a proportion of total liabilities fell to 11.7%, down 0.9 percentage points on the December quarter 2012 percentage of 12.6%, while asset backed securities issued domestically as a proportion of total liabilities rose to 74.9%, up 0.1 percentage point on the December quarter 2012 percentage of 74.8%.
