Loan origination by rating
While each country experienced an increase in originations over October Finland saw the most dramatic change. Finland’s October origination was €499,185 while November totaled €1,040,950 representing a 108% increase in just one month.
- The single largest origination share was the HR rated loans in the Spanish market at 14.97%. Only E, F and HR ratings are available in this market. Therefore, the higher concentration in HR originations might represent a bigger draw to high-interest loans given that there is a significant risk profile among all three ratings. 84% of the originations occurring in Spain this month were concentrated in the HR rating.
- Estonia continues to draw the heavy originations at the C, D and E level all of which offer higher interest rates. Interestingly, these same three ratings each offer even higher interest rates in the Finnish market. However, in Finland C, D and E rated loans only total 14.09% of the total originations. This is less than half the total of C, D and E originations in Estonia.
- The stronger ratings of AA, A and B available only in Estonia, still do not attract many originations. Though these ratings are not seen in either the Spain or Finland market our investors continue to be attracted to lower rated (higher interest) loans in all three countries.
