KBRA UK Releases Research – European KBRA Securitization Investigation Reveals Market Worries


LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–KBRA UK (KBRA) releases a report containing the results of its recent survey of European securitization investors. We surveyed 35 investors across a wide range of asset classes to gauge their views and expectations for the market. The report aggregates and analyzes the responses, revealing a widely worrying picture that the European securitization market potentially has a further price correction in store as it adjusts to inflationary pressures and geopolitical upheaval. However, a large portion of investors also believe that the market will eventually rebound.

Key points to remember:

  • Most investors surveyed expect a continued widening of the bias in European securitization markets. This is especially true for investors in commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) and non-performing loans (NPL).

  • Issuance is expected to remain subdued, with most investors anticipating either a complete dry-up or a return to the post-global financial crisis (GFC) trend of retained and mostly prime collateral issuance.

  • The region of greatest concern for credit performance is the UK, followed by Italy, Spain, Germany and Ireland. A minority does not expect a deterioration in regional performance.
