  • EBA consults on the homogeneity of underlying exposures in securitisation

    The European Banking Authority (EBA) launched today a public consultation on draft Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) specifying a set of criteria for the underlying exposures in securitisation to be deemed homogeneous, as part of the requirements under the new EU securitisation framework. The homogeneity requirement aims to facilitate the assessment of underlying risks by investors and to enable them to perform robust due diligence. Its application is, therefore, one of prerequisites for a more risk sensitive regulatory treatment of the securitisation. The RTS are applicable to both asset-backed commercial paper (ABCP) and non-ABCP securitisations. The consultation runs until 15 March 2018.
