KBRA Releases Research – Consumer ABS Trend Watch: Record Issuance, Stellar Credit Performance

October 1, 2021 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 1, 2021--

Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases a report examining the consumer ABS market, which has seen a record amount of new issue supply, as well as strong investor demand and pricing, through the first three quarters of 2021.

As we look ahead to the final quarter of the year, we expect supply to remain robust as issuers race to secure their end-of-year financing, while we see little reason for demand to wane as investors continue to favor the ABS market for its attractive spread and yield profile. The report notes that credit performance has been rock-solid across each of the consumer ABS asset classes over the past 18 months. However, as enhanced unemployment benefits and other safety net programs roll off, we expect some normalization in credit performance.
