European ABS outstanding (EUR billion) 

Reinvigorating the European ABS market 

A significant number of investors are re-appraising their view on the asset class as an increasing body of evidence emerges showing that the history of credit performance within European Asset Backed Securities (ABS) since the advent of the credit crisis is very different from that experienced in the US.

On top of that, regulators and central banks are increasingly focusing on ways to reinvigorate the European ABS market, based on simple structures and transparent underlying asset pools with relatively predictable performance.

The Securitised Investments team at ING Investment Management (ING IM) is one of the leading buy-side investment teams focused on the market in Europe with around EUR 8 billion invested in the asset class. ING IM has recently launched a new European ABS strategy.
