ABCP conduits suffered a reputational battering as a result of last summer’s liquidity freeze in the commercial paper market. However, if events in Mexico are anything to go by the concept has survived. In late February, Deutsche Bank was poised to launch the first Latin American ABCP conduit in Mexico, a diversified multi-seller vehicle dubbed Aztlan.
