Introduction to securitisation

Securitisation, a complex structured financing, has evolved as the funding and risk transfer method of choice over the past few years. It is promoted by the European Commission as one instrument of choice in the context of the Capital Market Union. Despite the general economic downturn, and decreased reputation of securitisation products, the Luxembourg securitisation market continues to grow steadily. In addition, Luxembourg securitisation vehicles are used in many structures in Asset Management, Private Equity or Real Estate in order to optimize the investors benefits.

In this type of structured financing, a pool of financial assets (such as receivables, loans, mortgages, or leases) is transferred to a "special purpose vehicle" (SPV) that then issues securities, backed solely by the assets transferred and the payments derived from those assets.

It is therefore critical for Luxembourg corporate services, domiciliation companies, asset managers, private bankers and other service providers to understand the complete value chain of the securitisation business and to appreciate the opportunities and challenges it offers in a European context.
