Asset-Backed Securities

Asset-Backed Securities are securities backed by financial assets.

ABS differ from most alternative types of bonds in that their creditworthiness is sourced from underlying assets rather than the loan originator. Like equities and corporate bonds, ABS cover a broad spectrum of underlying asset classes. ABS our of the European markets have consistently outperformed over unsecured bank bonds, while offering long term growth and security over a collective of tangible assets.

ABS are still showing robust growth in the UK and Europe. With low rates, ABS offer investors secure options to mitigate loss amid market volatility and deliver solid returns. Default rates on AAA-rated European residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) have not risen above 0.1%.

Our team of highly vetted credit analysts work from a UK and European ABS model which forecasts continued growth and suggest that under the most extreme market swings, they hold steady as compared to other securities, and often avoid market loss entirely.*
