Happy New Year!
Like many of you, we have been tuning into the various predictions for ABS issuance in 2020 from the rating agencies, analysts and other market participants. Will this year bring “more of the same” for US ABS, as predicted by KBRA, or will US ABS volume be down slightly as predicted by S&P, or “another year of expanded issuance” as predicted by the market professionals polled by Asset-Backed Alert.
The Mayer Brown structured finance team is looking forward to kicking off the new year with some predictions of our own this week, as we gather for our annual “Securitization: What to Expect in 2020” seminar on January 15th in our New York office. Registration information can be found here.
