NEWS | For Immediate Release
LAS VEGAS, March 1, 2016 - Moody’s Analytics announced today the addition of a new tool, Liability Management, to its ABS System, the leading platform for issuers of structured finance transactions to model their securitizations.
“Liability Management gives customers the ability to quickly and proficiently model structured finance deals without using complex scripting languages,” said Marc Levine, Senior Director, Moody’s Analytics. “Our new functionality further enhances Moody’s Analytics’ full range of essential tools for professionals in the structured finance market.”
Liability Management supports modeling of a wide range of asset classes including mortgages, auto loans and leases, student loans, consumer loans and credit cards. It also supports a number of deal structures such as master trusts, term, and covered bond transactions.
Liability Management allows multiple users to undertake model development simultaneously, helping to improve precision and consistency. Furthermore, models created with Liability Management are easy to review and understand with the tool’s intuitive onscreen visualization capabilities.
The new liability management functionality deepens ABS System’s capabilities by providing issuers a simple means to model and reverse-engineer structured finance transactions. The ABS System is used by leading issuers globally, with over $500 billion of outstanding securities currently monitored, managed and reported via the platform. It is part of Moody’s Analytics’ full product suite for the structured finance market.
The suite also includes the Structured Finance Portal, which offers advanced cash flow analytics, benchmarking, credit modeling, and an extensive loan-level database. Completing the suite is Moody’s CreditView, which offers access to ratings, research, data and analysis from Moody’s Investors Service, integrated with complementary data and analysis produced by Moody’s Analytics.
Moody’s Analytics will be conducting demonstrations of its structured finance product suite at the ABS Vegas 2016 conference, hosted by SFIG and IMN.
