SYDNEY, Australia –  Moody’s Analytics, a global provider of analytical tools and risk assessment capabilities, today announced a further tailoring of its ABS Suite Plus solution to better serve the needs of the Australian & New Zealand markets.

Moody’s Analytics’ ABS Suite Plus is a software solution for end-to-end structured finance administration and analytics. ABS Suite Plus improves process efficiency, mitigates operational risks, enables scalability across asset classes and transaction types, and automates manual tasks.

Going forward, any new implementation of ABS Suite Plus in Australia or New Zealand would benefit from the following:

  • Region-specific implementation approach, which accounts for servicing systems and other infrastructure commonly used in Australia and New Zealand, as well as the specifics of local capital markets
  • Region-specific data mapping approach, which takes into consideration data points common to Australian and New Zealand assets
  • Region-specific reporting templates, including those addressing regulatory disclosure requirements by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) and Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ)

In addition, for those Australian and New Zealand institutions that plan to access overseas capital markets, ABS Suite Plus can be configured to enable compliance with:

  • the European Securitisation Regulation, including European Securities & Markets Authority (ESMA) reporting
  • the US SEC Regulation AB II (Reg AB II) asset-level requirements as well as Rule 17g-5

“Moody’s Analytics has served Australian and New Zealand market participants for nearly 15 years and in recent years we have built a large local staff.” said Marc Levine, Managing Director at Moody’s Analytics. “While our existing clients already enjoy solutions configured to their unique needs, we are confident that new implementations will benefit from a region-specific approach. This approach incorporates both local market specifics, reducing the overall implementation timeframe, and global best practices with insights we have acquired in working with over 150 of the world’s leading issuers, warehouse borrowers, and trustees.”

“The needs of Australian and New Zealand clients are at the core of our product development roadmap,” adds Levine. “We have a large client base in the region and as we continue investing in both functionality and usability of ABS Suite Plus, new features and workflow requests from local clients are assessed at par with those from clients based in the US, Europe, or elsewhere.”
