European DataWarehouse (ED) is the first centralised European platform for uploading and downloading ABS loan level data (LLD). ED as a market initiative aims to increase transparency and restore investor confidence in the ABS market. ED provides an easy to use platform for Data Owners and Data Providers to upload their ABS data which also conforms to Eurosystem requirements. In compliance with the ECB taxonomy, a score is generated and assigned to each ABS transaction after the submission and processing of the loan level data.
