As the US capital markets continue to evolve and longstanding regulatory uncertainties are resolved, ABS and MBS issuers and investors are increasingly entering or considering entering these markets once again. The years since the financial crisis have brought sweeping changes in the rules affecting structured finance in the US, and more changes are on the way. In this program, we will provide an overview of the principal US regulatory and market developments for ABS and MBS issues in the US, including:

  • State of the US ABS and MBS Markets
  • Status of Dodd-Frank securitization reforms
  • Volcker Rule issues
  • Risk retention rules
  • Regulation AB II
  • SEC conflicts of interest rule
  • Commodity Pool Operator regulation
  • End user swaps exemptions
  • Consumer and mortgage lending reforms
  • Housing finance reform/Future of the GSEs

We will also address the development of SEC registered covered bonds and the prospects for covered bond issuance by US banks.
