At 31 December 2017, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $132.5b, up $7.3b (5.9%) on 30 September 2017. The increase in total liabilities was primarily due to an increase in long term asset backed securities issued in Australia (up $8.6b, 8.0%). This was offset by a notable decrease in short term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $1.1b, 22.8%), and loans and placements (down $0.3b, 4.1%).
