Assets of Securitisers
At 31 March 2017, total assets of Australian securitisers were $121.6b, up $4.4b (3.8%) on 31 December 2016.
During the March quarter 2017, the increase in total assets was primarily due to an increase in other loans (up $1.9b, 12.0%), residential mortgage assets (up $1.3b, 1.4%) and cash and deposits (up $1.0b, 27.2%).
Liabilities of Securitisers
At 31 March 2017, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $121.6b, up $4.4b (3.8%) on 31 December 2016. The increase in total liabilities was due to an increase in long term asset backed securities issued in Australia (up $7.6b, 7.8%). This was partially offset by a decrease in short term asset backed debt securities issued in Australia (down $1.9b, 42.0%) and loans and placements (down $0.6b, 6.4%).
At 31 March 2017, asset backed securities issued in Australia as a proportion of total liabilities increased to 88.6%, up 1.5% on the December quarter 2016 proportion of 87.1%. Asset backed securities issued overseas as a proportion of total liabilities decreased to 3.8%, down 0.3% on the December quarter 2016 proportion of 4.1%.
