Key benefits of the EU Securitisation Regulation:

The Regulation applicable on the EU securitisation entities (SSPE and STS) is termed as a victory for the European securitisation industry and is perceived as being particularly beneficial for the capital market, as it aims to:

  • build the investors’ confidence in the securitisation entities;
  • help investors evaluate the risks related to securitisation, both within and across products;
  • improve risk management especially with the risk retention regulation as mentioned above;
  • bring in transparency and regular availability of information (including the investor reports and information related to underlying exposures);
  • develop a new regime of STS which will provide a more risk-sensitive framework for securitisation transactions; and
  • allow STS securitisation transactions to receive preferential capital treatment and benefit from other regulatory advantages such as a proposed exemption from clearing and a proposed relaxation of margin rules for derivatives entered by an SSPE.
