Australia's securitization market in 2006 has already established a new record for issuance with two months in the calendar year remaining. According to Standard & Poor's, volumes for the first 10 months of the year totaled A$65 billion ($49.7 million), exceeding the A$64.3 billion record for a calendar year set in 2004 and comfortably above 2005's total of A$56.1 billion.

With several deals still in the pipeline for Nov. and Dec., the final total could top A$70 billion.
