Assets of Securitisers
As at 30 September 2011, total assets of Australian securitisers were $134.8b, down $1.9b (1.4%) on 30 June 2011.
During the September quarter 2011, the fall in total assets was due primarily to decreases in long term asset backed bonds (down $3.3b, 46.9%) and other loans (down $1.1b, 8.1%). These decreases were partially offset by rises in residential mortgages (up $2.0b, 1.8%) and cash and deposits (up $0.4b, 10.9%).
Mortgage assets, which accounted for 84.0% of total assets, were $113.3b as at 30 September 2011, a rise of $2.0b (1.8%) during the quarter.
