16 Asset-Backed Securities Terminology Securitization involves the repackaging of generally illiquid assets that generate cash flows. The assets are sold to a special purpose vehicle whose sole function is to buy such assets in order to securitize them. The attractiveness of the transaction is that it separates the assets from the credit profile of the company that originally owned them. By adjusting the tranche amounts and term structure, the assets can be altered to suit the needs of investors. In addition, swaps, guarantees, and reserve funds can be used to enhance the creditworthiness of the newly issued securities, making them desirable for a broader range of investors. Collateralized Debt Obligation. A security backed by a pool of assets. CDOs do not specialize in one type of debt. Those that do include collateralized bond obligations (CBOs) and collateralized loan obligations (CLOs) Monoline insurer. Agencies that provide credit guarantees. They began by offering guarantees on municipal bond defaults, but have branched out.
17 Asset-Backed Securities Terminology Mortgage-backed securities. A bond that represents a securitized interest in a pool of mortgages. The simplest form of MBS is a mortgage pass-through. With that structure, all principal and interest payments (less a processing fee) from the pool of mortgages are passed directly to investors each month. There are residential (RMBS) and commercial varieties (CMBS) of these bonds.securitized Originator. Almost any entity that originates a receivable. Examples include a finance company with a pool of loans, a utility company selling electricity, or a credit card company. Obligor. The entity that pays the receivable, including the guarantor of the payment. Pass-through. Refers to mortgage pass-through securities when one or more mortgages are pooled and sold off. The cash flow of the resultant securities depend on the cash flow of the underlying mortgages. Receivable. The obligation to pay money. This can take many forms, such as payments on a loan, lease, or bond. Almost any cash flow can be securitized, though the receivable must be convertible into cash and the cash flow usually needs to be predictable.
18 Asset-Backed Securities Terminology Seniority. Affording a certain class of securities with a priority in claiming assets. It usually confers a greater creditworthiness, while subordinated issues offer higher yields. Servicer. They collect the payments on the receivables and are usually the originator. This is necessary since special-purpose vehicles typically have no staff or premises. Special-purpose vehicle. The entity that purchases the receivables and issues securities backed by them. It is typically structured to provide bankruptcy remoteness, insulating the issuer from the originator. SPVs are usually located in a tax-neutral location such as the Cayman Islands or Bermuda. SPV activity is typically restricted to the transaction being contemplated. Tranches. Different securities classes, typically with different payment structures and credit profiles.

26 Asset Securitisation and Implications on Financial Markets Positive A new financial instrument that facilitate development of bond market which in turn help create a more diversified financial markets. Can also be used for open markets. Improve risk management in the financial system and therefore reduce financial vulnerability. Create a new investment vehicle for investment for institutional and high net worth investors in the region. Increase liquidity for financial institutions. This would enable them to increase lending to corporate and households especially for housing finance.
27 Asset Securitisation and Implications Challenges Complex administration of capital adequacy under BASEL II. Should AAA rated securitized assets be given preferential treatment for capital adequacy?. Clear regulatory framework for securitization covering the accounting and tax treatment of SPV and other service providers. Increase in securitization reduce the efficacy of monetary policy (Arturo Estrella, FBRNY, Economic Policy Review, May 2002. Lack of liquid market can create valuation problem for ABS and the calculation of capital adequacy (marked to market issue).
