2019 / 2020 Special Reports


Mortgage Risk Transfer

A guide to the mortgage risk transfer market

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac cumulatively transferred a portion of the credit risk on US$2.7trn UPB of single-family mortgages, as at 31 December 2018. However, the US GSEs are not the only institutions utilising securitisation to reduce the costs of and expand access to mortgage credit. This SCI Special Report traces the development of the mortgage risk transfer market from the origins of the CAS and STACR programmes to the adoption of ILS techniques and the involvement of mortgage insurers.



A guide to the US CRE CLO market

The number of active US CRE CLO sponsors is gaining on the number of active conduit CMBS originators, boding well for issuance in the sector and the financing of transitional properties. CRE CLOs offer issuers a way to diversify funding sources and do not require mark-to-market on the assets. This SCI special report tracks the development of the market post-financial crisis and considers its prospects in the future.


Fintech and Securitisation / Market Place Lending

A guide to how fintech is being adopted by the securitisation industry

The online lending sector has become mainstream, forcing marketplace platforms to better differentiate the experience they offer to borrowers. At the same time, the entrance of new players is putting pressure on incumbents to remain competitive and relevant. This SCI Special Report explores how blockchain and other fintech offerings are being embraced by the securitisation industry.

SCI Special Reports


SCI Special Reports provide an in-depth exploration of emerging or noteworthy themes/sectors in the securitisation markets. The research, which is presented in chapter form, is based on interviews with a number of industry experts and is accompanied by graphics and data.

Your clients will always value analytical content and thought leadership on emerging sectors of interest, and areas of significant concern where the availability of reliable information is at a premium.

Providing such added value content is a constant challenge especially when you don’t have the expertise in-house, nor is it core-competence. Making a difference to your clients’ information needs can also be the difference in being noticed by prospects and to developing a continuingly positive dialogue with existing customers. And if you’re not doing, your competition almost certainly is.

This is where SCI can be of real help to you – SCI’s Special Reports are written in partnership with you, with both your clients’ needs and your services in mind. As independent specialists in structured finance we can generate attractive, impartial and analytical content along with your content and branding, to communicate both your areas of value and to generate highly targeted actionable sales leads.

This document sets out SCI’s bespoke Special Reports service. Contact us to discuss your requirements and how we may be able to help.
