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.
