Moody's has launched a new subscription research service to provide insight into the rapidly evolving global market for covered bonds. The package includes Moody"s comprehensive programme-level research and timely commentary on covered bond industry developments. It also features integrated access to credit research on bank sponsors and associated sovereign entities, providing subscribers with the data and tools necessary to perform a detailed analysis of their covered bond portfolio.
"Given the degree of uncertainty surrounding underlying country and banking credits in Europe, and the nascent markets for covered bonds in North America, market participants need access to the best credit research data and analyst insight," says Juan Pablo Soriano, Managing Director in Moody's EMEA Structured Finance team. "Moody"s has unmatched coverage of the global covered bond market."
The service provides access to ratings and analysis of over 220 covered bond programmes in Europe, Canada and the US. The service also includes regular performance overviews, which provide transparency on cover pool performance, and Moody"s pre-sale reports, which provide insight into the structures and sponsoring institutions of new covered bond offerings.
