With the current volatile environment, surveillance has become a key feature in the work of collateral managers and investors alike. In this vein, Deloitte & Touche - which has previously come out with the ABCP, ABS and CDO Suite products as part of its Securitization Office family of solutions - has released Surveillance Suite, which is a customized tool to help users track their portfolios.
Previously, Deloitte & Touche has helped a number of ABCP sponsors as well as investors with their surveillance data. "What we found at that time was that each surveillance process was different depending on the portfolio or deals that they were monitoring," said Mark Scherer, a principal at Deloitte & Touche. "These were projects that were one-off type of projects and we wanted to create a more comprehensive solution that would address this diversity."
