ABN AMRO forecasts securitization boost

 

Corporate financiers can expect aggressive deal structuring in the asset backed securitization (ABS) market in the second half of the year, according to predictions from ABN AMRO, as issuers look to take advantage of investor demand in the marketplace.

A trend for repeated ABS issuance by corporates has boosted investor confidence and continues drive prices to tight levels, says the bank. Aegon, Delta Lloyd, Achmea and AMS have all re-entered the ABS market and AAA rated spreads have shortened from Euribor +25 down to the +15 region in only six months.

Mike Nawas, global head of asset securitization, comments: "We foresee a market dynamic whereby ABS issuers will take advantage of strong investor demand to offer structures built on more aggressive collateral, resulting in higher proportions of subordinated assets - as investors likewise search for required yield levels."

The bank has also created a fresh role for Mauricio Noe who is appointed head of ABS capital markets in Europe, responsible for ABN's coverage of European issuers.
