Australian Securitization Forum

*Australian Securitization Reforms have put at risk the Master Trust structures according to Australian Regulations. This opens up opportunities for the Australian Financial markets to completely move their securitization structures offshore to jurisdictions like Mauritius. For more information for Australian Companies, contact info@securitizationfund.com as to how we can help you build a stable securitization company outside of Australia, with tax benefits that extend beyond the simple Master Trust structure.

South Africa Securitization Forum
The South African Securitisation Forum (SASF), a non-profit association, exists to promote the development of securitisation in South Africa through:

– education of the public, investors, originators and others with an interest or potential interest in the benefits of securitisation
– providing a forum to facilitate interaction between Securitisation market participants on topical industry issues
– being a central point of contact and industry voice in responding to proposed regulatory, tax, accounting and other changes likely to affect the industry.

With these aims in mind, various participants in the industry got together in October 2005 and formed the SASF. The members comprise the major banks, investors, originators, law firms, audit firms and trustee companies. The SASF has been modelled on similar forums in the USA, Europe, Asia and Australia.

The benefits of the work that will be done by SASF
The launch of the SASF is a positive step for the securitisation industry in South Africa, mainly because it is the first time that the industry participants and regulators in the country can interact through a more official structure.

Other benefits to be derived from the forum include industry standardisation and links with similar organisations around the world which allow the sharing of knowledge and experience, including shared experience of regulators in other jurisdictions.

European Investment Bank – Over 200 million Euro Securitization for SMEs

The Difference in using Mauritius is that within Europe there are all different classes of asset backed securities per sector and levels for the investment, in Mauritius it is simplified and less expensive with just one category of investment per fund. Securitization funds within the target market regions of international European funds such as EIB could attract financing for the expansion of their local securities markets. These funds can be structured through Mauritius.
