Introduction to securitisation

Over the past years, securitisation, a complex structured financing process, has evolved as the preferred funding and risk transfer method. 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 optimise 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) which 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.
