With the pricing of a self-led deal last week, Credit Suisse First Boston has surpassed Salomon Smith Barney by the slimmest of margins atop the U.S. asset-backed league tables, according to Thomson Financial. Also shaking up the top of the race, Lehman Brothers was set to move into a virtual tie with JPMorgan for third place with an offering that had yet to price as of press time.

Following the completion of a $1.2 billion series 2001-HE3 home equity loan securitization for issuance vehicle ABSC, Credit Suisse had brought $31.915 billion of proceeds to the hands of investors, a mere $7.1 million (yes million) ahead of Salomon, which had sold $31.908 billion as of last Thursday. Salomon did not lead manage an offering last week.
