For the 4th consecutive year, ARC Ratings was pleased to partner with Information Management Newtwork (IMN) as an associate sponsor of the Global ABS 2021 Conference which marked the welcome return to ‘in person’ events here in London last month. Co-Head of Structured Finance at ARC Ratings, Stefan Augustin, was invited to join panels on both days, offering insight and debate around the topics of blockchain and asset tokenisation on structured finance and securitisation transactions and bank deleveraging and the role of ABS.
In addition, he was also available to speak with GlobalCapital’s Tom Lemmon to discuss the tightening of ABS spreads in the securitisation markets, alongside fellow market commentators Alexander Batchvarov of Bank of America and Rob Ford at TwentyFour Asset Management.
