Objectives of the session

Reviving the securitisation market in the EU on a sound basis with a view to strengthen banks’ ability to finance the economy, provide additional funding sources for companies, and enhance private risk sharing is among the objectives of the Capital Markets Union. To this end, a new securitisation framework was published at the end of 2017 and entered into application on 1 January 2019. Implementing technical standards are being developed.

This session is intended to take stock of the regulatory evolutions introduced in the EU (STS criteria, reviewed capital charges for both investors and originators, etc.), the challenges faced to implement them and the realistic perspectives of the EU securitization market in the context of the Capital Market Union.

Points of discussion

Are the EU Simple Transparent and Standardised Securitisation framework and Significant Risk Transfer rules able to relaunch EU securitization markets?

What are the respective merits of securitisation and covered bonds to address bank balance sheet management needs (liquidity needs, reduction of regulatory capital needs and Single Resolution Fund, GSIB – Buffer, Leverage ratio, etc.)? What should be improved in each of these frameworks to better address EU bank needs?

What should be the specificities of the EU and US markets and related strengths and weaknesses?
