EBA
Consults on its proposals to create a STS framework for synthetic securitisation
25 September 2019
The European Banking Authority ("EBA") launched a 2-month public consultation on its proposals for a simple, transparent and standardised ("STS") framework for synthetic securitisation. This ground-breaking work on synthetic securitisation unveils new data and insights into post-crisis market developments and trends, including data on historical default and loss performance. It also proposes a list of criteria to be considered when labelling the synthetic securitisation as ‘STS'. While the Discussion Paper does not provide any recommendations on any potential differentiated regulatory treatment, it does seek stakeholders' input about the possibility, its potential impact and other considerations. The consultation runs until 25 November 2019. For more information please press here.

Active money managers like Amundi and BlueBay are cautious on China’s government debt amid concern over liquidity, capital controls and hedging. While foreigners own just a fraction of the world’s second largest bond market, their opinion may soon hold a little more weight as FTSE Russell is expected to include the bonds in its flagship index."  For more information please press here.
