During the March quarter 2018, the rise in total assets was primarily due to an increase in residential mortgage assets (up $1.0b, 0.9%), Credit card loans and trade receivables assets (up $0.7b, 21.3%) and Non-residential mortgage loans assets (up $0.2b, 12.4%). This increase was largely offset by a decrease in Other Loans assets (down $1.9b, 11.9%).
