KBRA Releases Monthly Auto Loan Indices for August

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases its Auto Loan Indices for the month of August and reports on delinquency roll rates from asset-level disclosures.

Servicer reports showed mixed results across securitized prime and non-prime auto loan pools in August. KBRA’s Prime Auto Loan Index showed year-over-year (YoY) improvements for the 19th consecutive month, driven by index mix shift and tighter credit underwriting. However, KBRA’s Non-Prime Auto Loan Index underperformed as losses rose on both a month-over-month and YoY basis.

Meanwhile, an analysis of loan level data showed some improvements in credit as the percentage of prime and non-prime borrowers who went from 60+ days delinquent to current rose to 21.5% and 14.7%, respectively, up from 20.8% and 12.8% during the previous month.
