Barcelona -- According to preliminary results of a PriceWaterhouse Coopers survey of originators in the market, for first-time European ABS issuers, the primary objective of securitization is to secure funding, followed by capital relief.

 

Additionally, for these issuers, relationships tend to dictate behavior, as only 7% percent of respondents cited all-in cost as the most important factor in selecting arrangers for a transaction. Meanwhile, 45% cited personal relationships as the top factor in dictating arrangers, with price coming in second.
