Liabilities of securitisers

At 31 December 2019, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $156.5b, up $9.5b (6.4%) on 30 September 2019. The increase in total liabilities was due to an increase in long term asset backed securities issued in Australia, up $9.0b (6.8%), and loans and placements, up $0.7b (17.8%). This increase was partially offset by a decrease in asset-backed securities issued overseas, down $0.3b (8.2%).
