Asset-Backed Bonds Said to Face Tougher SEC Disclosure Rules

Sellers of bonds backed by mortgages and auto loans would have to give investors details including the borrowers’ income and credit scores under rules the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is poised to consider this week, according to two people briefed on the plan.
