Assets of Securitisers
At 31 December 2014, total assets of Australian securitisers were $136.5b, up $4.8b (3.6%) on 30 September 2014.
During the December quarter 2014, the rise in total assets was due to an increase in residential mortgage assets (up $5.2b, 4.9%) and cash and deposits (up $0.3b, 7.1%). This was partially offset by decreases in other loans (down $0.6b, 3.9%).
Residential and non-residential mortgage assets, which accounted for 83.0% of total assets, were $113.3b at 31 December 2014, an increase of $5.2b (4.8%) during the quarter.
Liabilities of Securitisers
At 31 December 2014, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $136.5b, up $4.8b (3.6%) on 30 September 2014. The rise in total liabilities was due to the increase in long term asset backed securities issued in Australia (up $4.3b, 4.3%) and loans and placements (up $3.0b, 18.4%). This was partially offset by a decrease in short term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $1.5b, 33.0%) and asset backed securities issued overseas (down $1.1b, 10.4%).
At 31 December 2014, asset backed securities issued overseas as a proportion of total liabilities decreased to 7.2%, down 1.1% on the September quarter 2014 percentage of 8.3%. Asset backed securities issued in Australia as a proportion of total liabilities decreased to 77.5%, down 0.7% on the September quarter 2014 percentage of 78.2%.
