Secured Credit Insight: seniority and security at no extra cost



In the latest Secured Credit Insight, Colin Fleury, Head of Secured Credit, explores the opportunities within secured loans and asset-backed securities (ABS), explaining where investors can benefit from investment into these markets. In addition, an assessment is made of the US sub-prime auto loans sector, which has been receiving increasing attention and coverage in the media.

Summary points:

  • Seniority and security seem to be undervalued by sub-investment grade bond investors
  • Favouring loans over bonds - with a preference for European loans
  • Investment grade ABS continues to provide attractive relative valuations versus corporate bond equivalents
  • Increased stress in the US sub-prime auto loans market is not a harbinger of darker times for the US ABS market
