Yesterday (Tuesday, 8th of September 2009) Australia’s ME Bank (Members Equity Bank) initiated a A$276 million residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) bond sale. This is a significant and important transaction within Australian and international credit markets because represents the first public securitisation to occur without government intervention since September 2008.

This is a very positive sign that the residential backed securities market is starting to flow again. It is especially encouraging to see such a transaction occurring in the private market without government provided aid. Perhaps the government aid has therefore been successful in reducing the severity of the current global financial crisis (GFC).
