Securitization—the pooling and packaging of loans into securities for sale to investors—increases the availability and improves the terms of credit. Rather than holding loans on their balance sheets, financial intermediaries can use the proceeds from securitization to originate new loans. Investors gain diversity from the pooling process and liquidity from the markets for asset-backed securities (ABS). Securitization grew rapidly for most of this decade, with ABS outstanding rising from $3.4 trillion in first quarter 2000 to $8.4 trillion at their peak in mid-2008. At that time, ABS markets funded almost ...
triggered by a dramatic rise in mortgage delinquencies and foreclosures in the United States, with major adverse consequences for banks and financial markets around the globe. Approximately 80% of U.S. mortgages issued in recent years to subprime borrowers were adjustable-rate mortgages . 1 After U.S. house prices peaked in mid-2006 and began their steep decline thereafter, refinancing became more difficult. As adjustable-rate mortgages began to reset at higher rates, mortgage delinquencies soared. Securities backed with subprime mortgages, widely held by financial firms, lost most of their value. The result has been a large ...

SECURITIZATION If They Did It Right | War on the Home Front
Sometimes it IS easier to prove a negative than a positive. Your opposition has far more facts than you do and in due process, should be required to prove them up into a prima facie case using real evidence from competent witnesses, with real documents that nobody played with before initiating foreclosure. So let’s take a look at how all this WOULD HAVE BEEN DONE, because most judges, even today are seeing the transaction through this lens. A homeowner or prospective homeowner would apply for refinancing or a purchase money first, second or Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC).

Paralysis in the Debt Markets Is Deepening the Credit Drought ...
A year after Washington rescued the big names of American finance, it’s still hard to get a loan. But the problem isn’t just tight-fisted banks. The continued disarray in debt-securitization markets, which in recent years were the source of roughly 60 percent of all credit in the United States, is making loans scarce and threatening to slow the economic recovery. Many of these markets are operating only because the government is propping them up. But now the Federal Reserve has put these markets on notice that it plans to withdraw its support for them. Policy makers hope private investors will return to the markets, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

S&P, Moody's Found by Judge Not to Be Underwriters
June 1 (Bloomberg) -- McGraw-Hill Cos.’ Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s Corp. can’t be viewed as “underwriters” of securities offerings that needed their credit ratings, a federal judge said in explaining why he dismissed a lawsuit. U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in Manhattan said there was no legal basis for holding the ratings firms liable for losses, as the Public Employees’ Retirement Systems of Mississippi’s 2008 lawsuit sought to do. The plaintiffs in the consolidated fraud case claimed they relied on credit ratings to buy $63 billion of investment-grade mortgage-backed securities. market trends, news research and surveys resources

(January 24, 2005) Answer: The term "translation risk" refers to transfer risk, or the risk that a customer borrowing in a non-local currency will be unable through its Central Bank and local capital markets to gain access to that currency and service the debt, regardless of its own financial circumstances.

WikiAnswers - What are the Process of securitization
The process of securitization is relatively easy. First, an entity (the originator) desiring financing identifies an asset that is suitable to use. Loans or receivables are common examples of payment streams that are securitized. Second, a special legal entity or Special Purpose Vehicles ("SPV") is created and the originator sells the assets to that SPV. This effectively separates the risk related to the original entities operations from the risk associated with collection. When done properly the loans owned by the SPV are beyond the reach of creditors in the case of bankruptcy or other financial crisis; i.e. the ...
