Northern Rock said it is launching its first public securitization issue, which is in line with its agreed strategy. This transaction will diversify both the source and term of its funding base, and will be offered to investors in sterling and euros.

The size of the transaction is expected to represent roughly 2% of the balance sheet as of Dec. 31. Aside from this offering, Northern Rock will also remain substantially funded by retail savings.
