Editor’s picks

SRT features incorporated: The EIF has granted BBVA a €90m guarantee on a mezzanine tranche of a €1.95bn portfolio which will enable the provision of up to €600m financing of new investment projects to Spanish SMEs. The transaction incorporates structural features from the EBA’s significant risk transfer discussion paper and is part of a wave of agreements supporting SMEs across Europe.

CRT issuance boost expected: Total capital relief trade issuance this year should exceed 2017, believes alternative asset manager PAG Asia, one of the sector’s major investors. Issuance is expected to be accelerated by an end to accommodative central bank monetary policies, underlining the importance of investing experience and expertise.

Regulatory news

The European Commission has launched a consultation on its proposed new risk-sensitive treatment of securitisations under Solvency 2. The proposal – which seeks to harmonise existing legislation with the STS framework - has been welcomed for its potential to attract insurers back into the ABS market.
