2017 Structured Finance Issuance up Nearly 40% Y/Y

According to a research note from S&P Global, the latest U.S. structured finance numbers show that issuance increased 37 percent over 2016 volume, as several consumer sectors, such as credit cards and auto loans, returned to pre-2007 issuance levels.

The S&P analysts added that they expected issuance levels to continue growing in 2018 as "the percentage of loans financed by securitization is still historically low" and most U.S. debt sectors are supported by steady credit demand from investors looking for yield. The table below summarizes 2017 and provides S&P's issuance forecast for the coming year.
