The Global ABS/MBS Market inNumbers
The securitisation market in the US has grown rapidlysince the beginning of the 1980
s, and it continues toprovide the highest volume and liquidity. Most recently,the lead in growth was taken by Europe and Asia. Thesecuritisation market is increasingly becoming global.
Securitisation Fundamentals
Structured finance and securitisation are usually usedinterchangeably, although the former is by definitionbroader and includes traditional asset-backed securities aswell as more creative and innovative approaches. Amongthese innovations are the future flow (or revenue-based)financing and operating assets (or whole business)securitisation. Most recently, the marriage of structuredfinance tools and credit derivatives with the purpose of transferring the risk of a pool of assets has come to beknown as synthetic securitisation. We discuss the mainfeatures of the different types of securitisation.
Structural and Legal Aspects ofABS and MBS
The securitisation process features many legal andstructural aspects with the main objective of separation of credit risk of the underlying assets from the originator
scredit risk, and achieving credit quality of the asset-backedsecurities higher than that of the originator. We discussthe main legal and structural aspects of the securitisationprocess.
Asset Classes and BasicSecuritisation Structures
The different classes of assets determine the differentsecuritisation structures that are available in the market.Almost any asset type can be securitised if it meets somebasic conditions.
Rating Stability for ABS
ABS ratings have proved to be rather resilient since thedawn of securitisation in the early 1980ies, particularly if compared to corporate bonds.
The Issuer Perspective: Benefitsand Potential Drawbacks ofSecuritisation
