Every year, KangaNews hosts Australia’s leading nonbank lenders at a sector roundtable discussion – supported since 2019 by Natixis. In keeping with the unique circumstances of 2020, this year’s roundtable was conducted via videoconference. While market conditions have changed dramatically in the past 12 months, the sector is able to tell the same story of solid funding foundations and sound credit quality.
A challenging environment for nonbank lenders as the likelihood of a soft landing in the Australian economy recedes may mean less securitisation supply, local market participants suggested at an investor briefing in London. On the other hand, bank issuance, nonmortgage securitisation, collateral quality and increasingly positive demand conditions should support the sector through the next phase.
Coming off the back of difficult issuance conditions and narrow demand in 2022, the Australian securitisation market that met the new year’s first wave of deals provided more positive transaction outcomes. Even more reassuringly for market participants, deal flow continued as volatility surged in late March.
