Are All CLOs Equal?

Stavros Peristiani and Joao A. C. Santos

No 20161205, Liberty Street Economics from Federal Reserve Bank of New York

Abstract: Asset securitization is an important source of corporate funding in capital markets. Collateralized loan obligations (CLOs) are securitization structures that allow syndicated bank lenders and bond underwriters to repackage business loans and sell them to investors as securities. CLOs are actively overseen by a collateral manager that has the responsibility to trade loans in the portfolio to benefit from gains and mitigate losses from credit exposures. Because CLOs include a diverse portfolio of loans, a single firm that commingles its lending role with the collateral management role can reap information advantages stemming from its ?originate-to-distribute? activities.
