European DataWarehouse (EDW) is a Securitisation Repository designated by both the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA)and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). It was established in 2012 as the first Securitisation Repository in Europe to facilitate the collection, validation, and download of standardised loan-level data for Asset-Backed Securities and private whole loan portfolios. EDW stores loan-level data and corresponding documentation for investors and other market participants. Operating as a market infrastructure, EDW aims to increase transparency and restore confidence in the ABS market. Through EDW's data, users can analyse underlying portfolios in a more efficient way and compare portfolios on a systematic basis. Since its inception as part of the European Central Bank’s Loan-Level Initiative, EDW has collected over 3 billion loan records and relevant documentation for more than 1,600 transactions.
