Types of bonds

Asset-backed securities

Asset-backed securities (ABS) raise payment claims against a special purpose entity which uses the funds solely to acquire accounts receivable.

The purpose of ABS is to convert previously non-liquid assets into fixed-interest, tradable securities. In the process, certain financial assets belonging to a company are put into a pool of receivables which are managed by a financing company on a fiduciary basis.
