S&P Upgrades ABSXchange Platform for Loan Level Stress Testing and Portfolio Analytics

Subscribe to our newsletter

Standard & Poor’s structured finance platform, ABSXchange, has undergone a number of upgrades this month with a view to allowing users to conduct more robust analysis of their structured finance transactions. The platform, which the vendor bought in August 2007 and is part of its Fixed Income Risk Management Services (Firms) business line, now features loan level stress testing capabilities, enhanced portfolio analytics and improved reporting features for commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS).

David Pagliaro, EMEA commercial director of ABSXchange, explains: “This new version of ABSXchange includes a series of upgrades that will allow users to perform more rigorous examinations of structured finance transactions. The new portfolio analytics features are more closely aligned with user workflows and we have introduced a scalable format for future portfolio management services to be added, such as collateralised loan obligation (CLO) portfolio analysis and valuation services.”

Cash flow models for many UK master trusts, European CLOs and Australian residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS) have been added and an additional asset class has been introduced to the Rating Review Triggers service, says Pagliaro. The user interface has also been upgraded to align better with users’ workflows and new add-ons now allow users to export data to more external applications, claims the vendor.

The platform, which enables users to retrieve performance data from across the universe of publicly rated, securitised credits, has had a positive start to the year and, in February, Firms announced that four new clients had signed up to ABSXchange, including the UK Financial Services Authority (FSA).
