This paper provides an overview of the average CPR and CDR1 in Europe on a quarterly2  basis for the past year for various ABS and RMBS asset types across seven European countries.

This study covers all asset types with at least 10 outstanding transactions and accesssbile performance reports which equated to 506 deals in total. CPR and CDR rates were calculated based on reported prepayment and default balances if the percent values are not available. The metrics are calculated using an average of these deals’ performance over each quarter weighted by the outstanding balance of their collateral pools.
