Moody’s says securitisation outlook for 2008 constrained by credit crisis

Securitisation issuance volumes in new markets globally increased 23 per cent to $46.6 billion in 2007 compared to 2006, although with limited growth in some regions, says Moody's Investors Service in its special report on ‘Securitisation in new markets’. Moody's outlook for 2008 envisages that issuance volumes will be constrained by the continued fragile state of global capital markets, although geographic expansion of securitisation into new jurisdictions may continue, possibly with further diversification of asset classes.
