What is The ABS Database?

Subscribers to Asset-Backed Alert get FREE online access to The ABS Database, which captures information on all asset- and mortgage-backed securities sold worldwide. The database, compiled by the editors of Asset-Backed Alert, is the only comprehensive listing of public and private securitizations -- including collateralized debt obligations.

Relying on its database, Asset-Backed Alert regularly publishes rankings of key participants in asset-backed securitization: Underwriters, issuers, trustees, law firms, bond insurers and rating agencies. It also provides readers with a steady diet of statistical summaries showing securitization trends in all of the world's asset-backed securities markets.

The newsletter is produced by Harrison Scott Publications, which also publishes Real Estate Alert (the weekly update on institutional buying opportunities), Hedge Fund Alert (the weekly update on the alternative-investment community) and Commercial Mortgage Alert (the weekly update on real estate finance and securitization).
