This paper uses a proprietary database of asset-backed securities (ABS) to make two contributions to the literature: A detailed descriptive analysis of the ABS market and an investigation of the factors that influence underwriting fees in the ABS market. Using methodology similar to that used in Livingston and Miller (2000), evidence is provided that that the relation between underwriter prestige and underwriter fees is positive. Further, evidence is provided that the relation between underwriter fees and loyalty is positive, indicating that the more an issuer uses the same underwriter, the higher the fees that the issuer is charged.
