Course description


Securitization is sometimes referred to as structured finance or asset backed securities (ABS). It is the process of pooling similar types of assets together, such as residential mortgages or car loans, and then selling them to a special purpose vehicle (SPV). In turn, the SPV issues securities, such as notes, to raise cash to pay for the assets the SPV is purchasing. To illustrate this process, the course starts off by discussing a generic securitization structure and the motivations for issuers and investors. Presale reports will be used to help demonstrate the process.

The different types of underlying collateral are explored along with the structure of the deal including credit enhancements, such as overcollateralization and reserve accounts. There are many terms related to securitization including origination, prepayments, and waterfall, to name only a few. These are introduced throughout the course. The differences between agency residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS) and non-agency mortgage backed securities (NARMBS) will be explained. The structure of the deal and the corresponding tranches/classes are evaluated with particular focus on what risk factors will impact their valuation.

Who should attend?

Anyone who wants to learn about securitization, such as staff from operations, IT, legal, compliance, middle office, and HR, and regulators who work closely with various aspects of the fixed income and securitization markets.
