Types of Securities issued

Notes and Bonds

Any type of bonds or notes can be issued by a Luxembourg securitisation SPV:

  • yielding a fixed interest rate or variable interest

  • notes linked with an underlying asset

  • participating bonds

    

Notes or bonds are debt instruments issued by the securitisation undertaking with yield and value which depends on the securitised assets/risks/cash flow. Zero coupon bonds can also be issued and may be redeemable periodically or at the end of the securitisation process.

 

Shares and units

The issuance of shares or units to investors can be used to raise capital for the SV in exchange for providing the Client equity.

In such a case, the investors usually receive debt note convertible at some time in the future to equity. 

   

Each SV may issue different categories of shares, with or without voting rights and warrants attached to each share issued. The shares may be tracking a specific asset or a future proceed.

Such shares or units may receive an ISIN number and be accepted in the clearing systems.

The asset linked with the Tracker Certificate can be:

  • A share in an investment fund or a private equity deal

  • Real estate, plane, fleet

  • A loan, a bond, a receivable

  • Financial assets, shares, bonds or any securities

  • A collection of art

  • A future cash flow, IP or copy right

  • Shares

  • Bonds
