Terms sent to potential investors told them to expect weighted average seasoning of 8.2 months, and remaining term of 83.5 months.

It comes amid a wave of similar ABS deals.

There’s been about $930 million of personal loan ABS issuance from non-bank lenders this year so far. The biggest one has been Plenti’s $280 million deal, followed by Wisr’s $250 million issue, and NOW Finance and MoneyMe’s $200 million each.
