2019 ABS Market Outlook: Economic and Technological Trends


Although asset-backed securities continue to benefit from healthy consumer finances and the overall strength of the U.S. economy, some investors have become cautious in the face of rapid technological change and market fluctuations.

To prepare their organizations for the next economic cycle, executives in the asset-backed securities sector agree that embracing digital transformation is critical in 2019. In fact, 90% of respondents to a Capital One ABS survey feel that adopting new technologies will be essential in preparing their businesses for the next economic cycle.

But which technologies have the most significant potential? What advantages and disadvantages could organizations face in this era of change and disruption? And how has the ABS landscape shifed since last year’s discussion? To answer these questions, Capital One asked several dozen senior ABS executives about economic trends, machine learning, artificial intelligence, blockchain and more.
