Structured Finance & Securitisation

Ireland is a leading jurisdiction globally for incorporating and servicing special purpose vehicles (SPVs) used in structured finance and securitisation transactions. Irish SPV are used to issue debt, and to acquire or hold rights and assets, in connection with these transactions.

Key elements include: the section 110 tax regime (which is specifically designed for securitisation transactions); our stock exchange, Euronext Dublin, which is the #1 debt listing venue worldwide for Irish and non-Irish issuers; a highly experienced ecosystem of professional and administration services providers supporting these transactions; and experienced and predictable common law courts.

Our team includes Irish and English qualified lawyers, with national and international private practice and in-house experience. We assist Irish and international sponsors and originators, issuers, arrangers and programme coordinators, trustees and agents on the structuring and execution of these transactions. Our work includes public and private, standalone and multi-issue, securitisations, asset-backed securities and repack transactions.

We also assist issuers to list their debt at a number of leading stock exchanges, including Euronext Dublin, Vienna MTF and The International Stock Exchange (TISE) in the Channel Islands. We can provide guidance on choosing which exchange to list at and an issuer’s continuing obligations.
