The LCR conundrum

This year will see an important step taken in the European implementation of Basel III’s Liquidity Coverage Ratio. For covered bond bankers, the thorny issue of what constitutes a liquid product is top of the agenda. As Bill Thornhill writes, they argue that a quantitative approach is the wrong way to go about it.

  • US risk transfer market finally opens up

    The risk transfer market has been growing for years, with new jurisdictions, new collateral types, and more issuers waking up to the potential of the tool. But while investors welcomed debut deals from Canada, Japan, and Mexico, there was always one country which was the biggest prize of all. Last year, finally, the US stirred for real, with a deal between JP Morgan and PGGM hopefully firing the starting gun on a major market expansion. Owen Sanderson reports.

  • CLOs: can the market handle the heat?

    US CLO deals are flooding into the market at a record pace, stretching bankers, lawyers and rating agencies to the limit and challenging the capacity of investors to absorb the heavy volume. There are no signs of slowing down but the oversupply of deals, alongside refinancings and resets, might eventually weigh on spreads, increase manager tiers and cause indigestion.
  • Team strength the key factor in ABS

    As part of GlobalCapital’s awards survey, we asked securitization participants what they wanted from their banks. The results emphasized the importance of market knowledge, more than anything else. Other important qualities sought after included strength of the team and their ability to deal in difficult market conditions, regardless of sector. League table positions mattered less. We also asked you what your outlook was for the second half of 2021. Most expect ABS, RMBS and CMBS spreads to remain stable, but there’s also a sizable number of folks who believe spreads may either tighten or widen slightly. The only exception was expectation for CLO spreads, which very few expect will widen. A big thank you to those who participated in the survey. We’d welcome any suggestions on how we can improve next year!
