Structured Finance Deal Modeling

Alterest provides standardised procedures for ABS transactions with a modeling layer powerful enough to accurately translate any term sheet of a warehouse, securitization or structured finance deal. Migrate legacy deals or create new ones. This provides you a single source of truth for all deal models as opposed to several versions of various spreadsheets. Insights and alerts run on these models to provide an end-to-end solution for your desk.

How it works
