Countrywide Securities is once again at the top of the ABS issuance league tables, according to data tracked by Thomson Financial. As the market heads into the homestretch of what will most likely be yet another record-breaking year, 2005 could likely send issuance numbers near the $1 trillion mark.

So far, Countrywide has accounted for over $66 billion this year, giving it 8% of the total primary market and a $4 billion lead over its numbers last year at this time. Coming off a year in which its issuance soared to a market-leading $87 billion, Countrywide is once again poised to lead the pack all the way to the finish.
