Covered Bonds

Allen & Overy is the leading legal adviser in the covered bonds market.

Working closely with the authorities, issuers and investment banks on the implementation of domestic legislation across numerous jurisdictions we have a deep appreciation of the issues encountered in the market and have worked on a variety of structures.

As a result, we have advised on covered bond programmes not only in the core markets in Europe but across the globe both for structured and legislative covered bond transactions. We have a particular track record of advising on the first covered bonds programmes in markets, such as advising on the first covered bond programmes in Australia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Korea, New Zealand, Switzerland and the UK. We have also acted on the establishment of covered bond programmes in Canada, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the U.S.

We also work with the broadest range of assets for inclusion in covered bond programmes including social housing loans, infrastructure loans, shipping loans commercial mortgages as well as residential mortgage loans.
