Structured Finance & Securitisation
Ireland is a leading jurisdiction globally (and the leading European jurisdiction) in which to incorporate and service special purpose vehicles (SPVs) and financial vehicle corporations (FVCs) for structured finance and securitisation transactions. Irish SPVs/FVCs are used to issue and list debt securities and to acquire portfolios of assets.
We assist Irish and international sponsors and originators, issuers, lead managers and arrangers, trustees and agents on the structuring and execution of these transactions. We work on public and private standalone and multi-issue securitisations, asset-backed securities and repack transactions.
Our team includes Irish and English qualified lawyers, who have national and international private practice and in-house experience. They have worked for, and within, the financial institutions that structure and coordinate these transactions.
We also assist issuers to list their debt securities at a number of leading exchanges, including Euronext Dublin (the #1 bond listing venue worldwide), Vienna MTF, The International Stock Exchange (TISE) in the Channel Islands and Borsa Italiana (also a member of the Euronext group). We also provide guidance on which exchange to list at and an issuer’s continuing obligations.
The team includes lawyers with a dedicated focus on the corporate trustee and the agency community. We are one of the only Irish law firms with such a focus.
