Article publication date: 1 April 2000


Examines the securitization market and explores the factors which fuel grounds for growth in this market and whether, in light of proposed BIS changes, it will continue to expand. Discusses possible pitfalls and itemizes these with further explanations. Looks at the situation in three countries in particular – Italy, Germany and France, giving useful breakdowns on each. Concludes that banks will have an even greater incentive to remove high‐credit risk corporates from balance sheets owing to capital required.
