The fate of securitisation

Investment funds are feeling the impact of new rules such as ATAD and the EU Securitisation Regulation 2017/2402. You may be asking yourself whether you can still use securitisation as an intermediary company and/or feeder structure for your funds – and if not, if there is an easy way out. Our experts will be looking at these questions as well as into the future – is a revised securitisation law in the making?
