Moody’s Analytics, a leader in risk measurement and management, announced today at the ABS East Conference that its Structured Finance Portal has signed over a dozen new clients since it launched in February.

The portal provides financial institutions with innovative content and analytics, delivered in real-time in an easy-to-use web-based format. It contributes to greater operational efficiency by reducing the manual process typically associated with normalizing and aggregating data.

The majority of new users are on the buy-side, followed by collateralized loan obligation (CLO) managers, sell-side analysts, and risk professionals.

“The strong momentum the Structured Finance Portal has seen from the market is an endorsement of the strength of our offering, which is well-positioned to meet client demand in the CLO space,” said Luis Amador, Managing Director and Head of Moody’s Analytics Structured Finance Advisory Team. “As our subscriber base grows, we are investing to meet demand and to add support for additional asset classes.”

Initially focused on CLOs, the portal is expanding to include ABS autos, ABS credit cards and student loans. It includes loan-level data, such as default probabilities and financial ratios, to show which deals and managers are most exposed to a loan and who has been trading it recently.

Also included are hundreds of metrics on manager style and performance. Users can compare managers and their trade behavior, loss mitigation, market perception and concentration choices in addition to NAV (net asset value) analysis. It also provides access to up-to-date estimated SSFA (simplified supervisory formula approach) capital charge calculations for each tranche, along with the underlying factors.
