Abstract: Asset-backed securities are debt instruments that are backed by a pool of loans or receivables. There is considerable diversity in the types of assets that have been securitized. These assets can be classified as mortgage assets and nonmortgage assets. The former includes residential and commercial mortgage loans. The two largest types of nonmortgage assets that have been securitized are card receivables and auto loan receivables. Investors are attracted to asset-backed securities primarily because of their desirable investment and maturity characteristics.
