DBRS Publishes Updated Master European Structured Finance Surveillance Methodology

January 30, 2019

DBRS finalised its “Master European Structured Finance Surveillance Methodology”. This methodology presents the criteria for which European Structured Finance ratings are monitored.

The updated version to this methodology includes an updated Scope and Limitations section and incorporates three additional asset classes: Reverse Mortgages, Auto Wholesale Securitisations and Trade Receivables. DBRS deems the changes to be material but does not expect the methodology changes to affect any outstanding ratings.

DBRS publishes on its website any comments received except in cases where confidentiality is requested by the respondent. However, DBRS received no comments about the proposed methodology or new appendices during the request for comment period; therefore, no changes were made to the version published on 20 December 2018.


DBRS criteria and methodologies are publicly available on its website under Methodologies & Criteria.
