Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases its marketplace consumer loan indices for November.
Marketplace consumer loan collateral performance weakened in November, as annualized net losses moved higher in all three of KBRAs indices month-over-month (MoM). The MoM weakness may be due to seasonal factors, similar to what we see in subprime auto loan collateral pools, where losses peak from November to January, as borrowers use excess cash for their holiday spending. Loss rates were fairly stable on a year-over-year (YoY) basis in KBRAs Tier 1 and Tier 2 indices and improved in KBRAs Tier 3 index.
