Introducing AutoLDM—A New Way to Analyze Auto Loans


Today marks the publication of Chris Widman's Quantitative Perspective, a comprehensive article on the newest member of our LoanDynamics suite, the Auto LoanDynamics Model. Auto LDM will be integrated into vendor systems and AD&Co tools, allowing users to perform analysis on auto loan and ABS positions. Applications include economic scenario analysis to examine the impact of unemployment scenarios or rates on defaults, losses and prepayments, stress testing for CCAR/CECL, valuation and risk measurement.

The article provides an overview of the auto loan market, discusses the underlying data used for estimation, our model architecture, and contains sections on delinquency, seasonality, unemployment and severity determinants. We look forward to your feedback – please reach out to us at if you are interested in more details or a trial.
