Assets of securitisers
At 30 June 2019, total assets of Australian securitisers were $144.2b, up $5.7b (4.1%) on 31 March 2019.
During the June quarter 2019 the rise in total assets was primarily due to an increase in residential mortgages (up $6.1b, 5.6%). This increase was partially offset by a decrease in other loans (down $0.9b, 5.5%).

At 30 June 2019, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $144.2b, up $5.7b (4.1%) on 31 March 2019. The increase in total liabilities was due to an increase in long term asset backed securities issued in Australia (up $6.3b, 5.0%). This increase was partially offset by a decrease in short term asset-backed securities issued in Australia (down $0.4b, 8.7%) and loans and placements (down $0.3b, 6.6%).
