Common rules on securitisation and European framework for STS securitisation

23-10-2017

Securitisation refers to the process of packaging and converting loans into securities, which can then be sold to investors. In the context of its efforts to build a Capital Markets Union, the Commission has proposed a regulation which lays down common rules on securitisation, and provides a framework for simple, transparent and standardised (STS) securitisations. Parliament is due to vote on the proposal during the October II plenary.
