BARCELONA - For first-time European issuers, the primary objective of securitization is funding, followed by capital relief, according to preliminary results of a PriceWaterhouse Coopers survey of originators in the market.

As well for these issuers, a working relationship is key. Only 7% of respondents cited all-in cost as the most important factor in selecting arrangers for a securitization, with 45% citing personal relationships as the leading factor dictating arrangers, and price the second-leading factor.
