Securitisation

Our securitisation practice is renowned for being innovative and creating benchmarks in the market and, most importantly, providing clients with commercially viable structures in the increasingly regulated international markets.

International transactions are the norm and we have securitisation specialists across our global network of offices. In addition to working in jurisdictions where our specialists are located, our lawyers also regularly advise on work outside of the Allen & Overy network. We are adept at securitising in new markets, examples of which includes working on Greece’s first private sector securitisation, advising on the first auto loan securitisation in the Middle East, developing the first UK master trust structures (and the subsequent master issuer and delinked structures) and the first whole business securitisations in Germany and the UK.

Our securitisation team regularly advises arrangers, originators and trustees on transactions involving a wide variety of asset classes and structures, including 'true sale' and synthetic securitisations, CLOs, CDOs and the establishment of securitisation programmes. Our experience includes advising on precedent-setting residential and commercial mortgage-backed securitisations, whole business and public sector securitisations, as well as securitisations of auto loans, consumer loans and trade receivables

Our securitisation team works alongside structured finance, derivatives and banking lawyers to ensure clients’ transaction needs are met and complex structures can be successfully completed. The team is also able to call upon the resources of specialists in their particular field of expertise such as tax, real estate finance, project finance and corporate trustee as and when required.
