New rules from Mexico’s banking regulator are an auspicious move for future securitizations from this sector, according to Maria Muller, senior vice president at Moody’s Investors Service.

The regulations are expected to improve data gathering by altering how banks calculate their reserves for mortgage and non-revolving loans. “Obviously data is extremely important in securitization,” Muller said. “To the extent that these rules are going to result in more data gathering in terms of mortgages and other types of loans — it’s a positive for future securitization.”
