A&L Goodbody’s Debt Capital Markets group is a market leader in securitisations.

We have in-depth experience advising domestic and international clients on the full spectrum of securitisation products, including residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS), asset-backed commercial paper, auto-ABS, CLOs, repackagings, CMBS, credit card receivables, receivables financings, loan portfolio sales and related financings.

We advise originators (both traditional banks and non-bank entities), credit funds, arrangers and lead managers and various financial institutions on a wide variety of bespoke and market leading securitisation transactions. We are familiar with the many legal intricacies of securitisations and provide commercially focused, practical advice and solutions to our clients. We work with clients to navigate through all issues that they may encounter to achieve a successful product launch, including simple, transparent and standardised (STS) categorisation and compliance, asset ring-fencing, market abuse legislation, significant risk transfer (SRT) classification and true sale.
