Structured finance is used by corporations to raise debt cheaply and frequently. In Japan, it has been a selective source of alternative financing for almost two decades. But structuring techniques can be manipulated to mislead investors on credit quality. Ann Rutledge and Sylvain Raynes, seasoned financial professionals and Principals of R&R Consulting, guide the audience through the smoke and mirrors to the discovery of true relative value as explained in their new text on structured finance. In the context of the Bank of Japan’s recent decision to invest in asset-backed securities, and the use of securitization as a tool for corporate revitalization, they discuss how their new method of analysis can promote capital efficiency in Japan’s financial sector and help investors manage their structured exposures. Includes continental breakfast and booksigning.
