This is an introductory course intended to provide a foundation on securitisation for anyone who wishes to become involved in field, or who has come across it in the course of their job and requires more detail.

Securitisation is a process by which illiquid assets such as cash flows and connected contract rights are pooled and repackaged into marketable instruments representing claims against the asset pool. These securities are then sold to third-party investors. Securitisation can be a cheaper and more flexible source of long-term financing than bank finance, particularly for companies below investment grade.

Join us for a fifteen-hour course, held over five days.
