What Is Securitization?
The process through which a customer achieves non-recourse funding by selling assets to a bankruptcy-remote SPV. Securitization typically provides the customer with a lower cost of financing. Securitization can encompass many asset classes such as trade receivables, utility receivables, healthcare receivables, auto loans & leases, equipment loans & leases, and credit card receivables. MUFG Bank offers securitization solutions to customers, typically funded through asset-backed commercial paper (ABCP) programs or asset-backed loans provided by MUFG Bank.
Key Benefits of Securitization
- Typically lower cost financing than traditional funding
- Diversification of funding
- Non-recourse to the originator/seller of the receivables
- Early monetization of assets and improvement of cash conversion cycle
- Certain structures can achieve off-balance sheet treatment under IFRS/US GAAP
