Structured Finance

Structured Finance is a specialized investment that enables issuers to fund alternative activities by moving assets off balance sheet or otherwise segregating assets and enables investors to find attractive alternative investment opportunities.   Common structured finance asset types include residential mortgages (MBS), commercial mortgages (CMBS), corporate loans (CLOs), debt instruments (CDOs), leases and receivables.   These structured transactions require specialized knowledge from both the issuer and the investor.
