Blockchain is alive again: Applying blockchain technology in debt security
2020 has been one unprecedented year! As the first year of the new decade comes to a close, it will seem that blockchain is poised to make a rebound with two major events taking the wider community by storm. First, it was announced that China Construction Bank (the “CCB”) had been working with the Fusang Exchange to raise up to $3 billion through a publicly listed debt security on a blockchain. Whilst, CCB ultimately suspended the issuance of digital bond in order to address a number of issues related to the bond’s concept, this is a clear sign that traditional financial institutions are taking blockchain technology serious once more and are themselves moving from being mere blockchain sceptics to blockchain evangelicals. The second event is of course the rise in price of bitcoin once more. Towards the end of the November, Bitcoin has rebounded to historic high levels once more reaching values of US$19,129.30 to 1 BTC on 24 November 2020.
Securitisation – How can a finance company move its loan portfolio into an SPV?
One of the most cost effective ways of fund raising for any company is through securitisation. The Asia Pacific Structured Finance Association issued a report last month “depicting a promising and lucrative picture for developing Hong Kong into a securitisation hub”. Hence, it should not be surprising that a great number of finance companies have securitised, or are already looking to securitise, their respective loan portfolios. Through a series of articles, we will address some of the legal issues a finance company will face when attempting to securitise its loan portfolio. The very first being how to the legally and effectively “move” its loan portfolio to a single purpose company (“SPC”).
Securitisation of non-traditional assets: Innovative alternatives to fund raising
Securitisation is a means of raising funds secured on the back of identifiable and predictable cashflows derived from a particular pool of assets. In the last few decades a wide range of assets have been securitised. The more usual types of collateral used in securitisation transactions include residential and commercial mortgages, credit card and trade receivables, and corporate, consumer and student loans. Are there alternatives to these traditional assets that are suitable for securitisation? The answer is absolutely positive. The intention of this article is to shed light on an innovative financing channel, whose full hidden potential has not yet been realised—securitisation of non-traditional assets.
