In its earlier stages, the asset-backed securities1 (ABS) market securitized a relatively narrow market segment focusing on consumer-centric financial assets and targeted a narrow group of investors. That is no longer the case. Over the past decade, ABS has evolved substantially, surpassing other financial products in its ability to provide an attractive and diverse universe of investment opportunities. Importantly, the evolution and growing sophistication of ABS allows skilled investment teams to tailor portfolios to a growing investor base with a broad range of investment goals.
