Assets of Securitisers
At the end of the September quarter 2008, total assets of Australian securitisers were $229.1b, down $10.3b (4.3%) on the June quarter 2008 total. This is the fifth consecutive fall for the assets of Australian securitisers.
Mortgage assets, which accounted for 75.2% of total assets, were $172.3b at 30 September 2008, a decrease of $7.6b (4.2%) during the quarter.
During the September quarter 2008, residential mortgages decreased by $7.3b (4.2%), while holdings of long term asset backed securities decreased $2.9b (14.0%).
Liabilities of Securitisers
The decrease of $10.3b in total liabilities during the September quarter 2008 was due to decreases in short term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $4.2b, 10.5%), loans and placements (down $2.6b, 24.9%), and other liabilities-residents (down $1.3b, 16.7%).
The fallout of events in global financial markets has continued to limit the ability of securitisers to issue debt securities during the September quarter 2008.
Asset backed securities issued overseas increased to 29.4% of total liabilities in the September quarter 2008, up 0.9 percentage points on the June quarter 2008.
Asset backed securities issued domestically increased to 64.1% of total liabilities, up 1.0 percentage points on the June quarter 2008.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
