Most Securitized Assets Back on Bank Balance Sheets
September 16, 2010    Disclosures    POSTED IN  InvestmentsMarkets

Due to the implimentation of both FAS 166 and FAS 167 securitized assets that had previously been held off banks balance sheets in what are known as Qualified Special Purpose Entities (QSPE) have to be evaluated for consolidation. As of the beginning of 2010 credit card securitizations, certain mortgage securitization entities such as non conforming mortgages and asset backed commercial paper will appear on banks balance sheets as they will no longer be allowed to hold them off their balance sheets in QSPEs.As a result of these new rules bank capital ratios will change as these loans appear on the balance sheet. In addition it is possible that banks may be somewhat limited in their ability to extend credit at least by comparison to the last decade.
