Structured Credit Investor SCI’s 1st Annual Middle Market CLO Seminar26 June 2019, New York


NPLs refers to securitisations that are structured utilising non-performing loans from either one or a collection of loan issuers. Typically involving large whole loan portfolios from distressed asset investors or non-core asset disposals from a bank, NPL securitisations are a strongly growing part of the structured credit and ABS markets. NPL structures used to date include ABS, RMBS and CLOs, though it is likely that these will broaden to CMBS and beyond in time.
