Structured Finance Law Definition

Structured Finance Law applies to financing transactions structured to separate cash-generating assets from claims unrelated to the issuance of debt instruments. Typical examples include asset-backed securities (ABS), residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS), commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS), and structured credit transactions.

Bankruptcy-remote SPV is usually used in these transactions to hold assets and issue securities. The isolation of the assets from the corporate credit risk of the originator is often achieved by the sale of the assets to SPV.

Such segregation of assets might allow better accounting treatment for assets’ seller’s balance sheet and substantially enhance credit quality of debt securities.

Structured Finance lawyers need to thoroughly understand all sides of a transaction, including underlying assets regulation and securities market specifics.

In particular, security is of vital importance to Structured Finance deals. The underlying assets are held by SPV as security for noteholders. The income from these assets is applied toward the payment of interest and principal on the debt securities. Security package is often enhanced by additional financial and legal techniques, such as over-collateralisation, subordination of creditors’ claims, and hedging instruments.

Structured Finance often involves a number of different parties, including originator, arranger, servicer, trustee, paying agent, calculation agent, swap counterparty, and parties fulfilling back-up functions. Contractual arrangements need to be carefully developed by Structured Finance lawyers.

Structured Finance securities are typically rated. Rating agency’s requirements for the transaction’s structure and contractual terms need to be met in order to achieve the target rating.
