Parties involved in securitisation

Numerous parties can play a role in a securitisation transaction.


Among them:

- The Borrower - who owes payments in relation to the loan granted by the originator; this receivable generates future cash flow which will be securitised.

- The Originator - the entity owning or assigning the assets to be securitised. For example, a financial or insurance company, a commercial bank or a securities firm or any other party owning receivables - assets which generate future cash flow.

- The securitisation undertaking - the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) which is set-up to buy the underlying assets, receivables, a portfolio of mortgages, real estate, or future cash flow against which a security will be issued (asset backed security).

- The Investors - who buy the securities issued by the SPV and then receive interest and coupons, the yield is defined by the cash flow generated by the underlying assets. They can be institutional investors, family office, HNWI, pension funds, insurance companies or investment fund managers.


Other parties include: trustees (who are responsible for keeping the underlying assets which serve as a pledge to secure the transaction), investment banks (who place the securities issued by the SPV), rating agencies (who rate the risk of the issuance of securities), paying agent (for the securities), asset managers (for the underlying assets), auditors (for the SPV), custodian (to keep the underlying asset, or the cash generated by the transaction, safe), etc.
