Barclays Capitalpublished the results of its first European ABS annual survey today. According to Barclays, European ABS is in store for another record year in 2006. Oththe 50 investors participating in the survey, 39 said the average growth expectation over the next 12 months is 40%. Primarily smaller investors, rather than the larger players who already have significant exposure to European ABS, will boost the growth rate, Barclays expects. CMBS and RMBS were the preferred sectors among the respondents and are expected to have above average growth relative to other ABS sectors next year.
