Fitch Ratings debuted a set of U.K. credit card securitization indices last week called Credit Card Movers & Shakers U.K. Karen Dyke, associate director at Fitch in London, says the index has been established in response to the growth seen in U.K. credit card securitization issuance and because the market is at a critical mass to allow for performance comparisons between deals.

The indices include all outstanding credit card securitizations and going forward will be published on a quarterly basis. Currently, there is approximately £9 billion in U.K. credit card issuance outstanding. In addition to the indices, Fitch will publish a quarterly commentary providing an overview of performance trends in the market, individual performance reviews of Fitch rated transactions and market commentary.
