The term securitization is used to represent the process whereby assets are pooled together, with their cash flows, and converted into negotiable securities to be placed into the market (Tasca and Zambelli 2005) or to be used as collateral in refinancing transactions with Central Banks or with market participants. Securitization is aimed at transforming illiquid assets into securities. These securities are backed or secured by the original underlying assets and are generally defined as Asset Baked Securities (ABS). Theoretically, any financial assets producing cash flows (receivables, residential and commercial mortgages, credit card receivables, and other consumer and commercial loans) can be securitized (see, e.g., Buchanan 2016, Buchanan 2017; Kara et al. 2016; Malekan 2014; Lipson 2012). The main purpose of the chapter is to analyze the basic characteristics and the market structure of traditional securitization, especially with reference to the Italian market.

Abstract

The term securitization is used to represent the process whereby assets are pooled together, with their cash flows, and converted into negotiable securities to be placed into the market (Tasca and Zambelli 2005) or to be used as collateral in refinancing transactions with Central Banks or with market participants. Securitization is aimed at transforming illiquid assets into securities. These securities are backed or secured by the original underlying assets and are generally defined as Asset Baked Securities (ABS). Theoretically, any financial assets producing cash flows (receivables, residential and commercial mortgages, credit card receivables, and other consumer and commercial loans) can be securitized (see, e.g., Buchanan 2016, Buchanan 2017; Kara et al. 2016; Malekan 2014; Lipson 2012). The main purpose of the chapter is to analyze the basic characteristics and the market structure of traditional securitization, especially with reference to the Italian market.
