Indeed, the number of impact investors allocating to ABS is expected to continue rising alongside issuers seeking to broaden their investor base, despite the election of reported climate change denier Donald Trump...
Digging deeper: A recent JPMorgan study of 48 US CLOs shows that from 2013 to date there has been an average increase in WARF score from 2,719 to 2,899, while yields have decreased on average 48bp.

Euro ABS/MBS distracted: New deals are continuing to keep focus away from the European ABS/MBS secondary market. "Primary is still distracting most players, with a couple of new deals in particular drawing most attention right now," says one trader. "The Red & Black auto deal is pretty straightforward, but the next Towd Point issue is more complex and it's taking a bit of time for people to fully understand the credit and get comfortable with it..."
• Renovate America is in the market with an usual PACE securitisation. Dubbed HERO Residual Funding 2016-1R (Cayman), the US$125m transaction is backed by the residual certificates of five previously issued PACE ABS from the HERO platform.
• The note trustee for Titan Europe 2006-5, US Bank (previously ABN Amro), has instructed the cash manager to retain €50m to provide for potential liability arising from class X noteholder contentions. As with a further four other Titan deals which are subject to class X noteholder litigation, it is unknown whether additional class X interest following default will ultimately rank senior to class A1 principal.
• The class B, C and D notes of Invitation Homes 2013-SFR1 have been upgraded by Moody's as a result of the steady build-up in equity in the properties backing the securitisation. IH 2013-SFR1 was the first-ever single-family rental securitisation (SCI 1 November 2013) and the move marks the first-ever upgrade for the segment.

• The European Commission's CRR 2 reforms, which it unveiled last week, include proposals that appear to increase the attractiveness of securitisation in connection with the leverage ratio and net stable funding ratio (NSFR). The package embeds three main Basel 3 elements into EU law: the fundamental review of the trading book (FRTB), the leverage ratio and the NSFR.
