Strategies for Dealing with Financial Asset Businesses and Portfolios—Part II: Structured Finance Alternatives for Financial Asset Businesses

2011 should be a busy year in financial institution M&A and many deals will involve financial assets and businesses, including distressed portfolios. Financial institutions are searching for ways to address the evolving regulatory and business environment, as well as the capital costs and risks posed by large portfolios of financial assets. And purchasers are seeking strategic methods to redeploy these assets. Depending on the circumstances and objectives, a variety of potential solutions are available to aid in corporate balance sheet repair and strategic deployment of financial asset businesses. Evaluating and implementing the appropriate strategies requires a multifaceted approach.

In this three-part Global Financial Markets Initiative teleconference series, Mayer Brown attorneys from M&A, Banking & Finance and Financial Services Regulatory & Enforcement will address the complex issues that face parties selling and purchasing financial assets and platforms.

In the second installment, Mayer Brown attorneys Mary Fontaine and Jeff Taft will discuss:

  • Risk sharing arrangements, including synthetic versus actual asset transfers
  • Regulatory capital relief for banks, insurance companies and other regulated entities
  • Control rights and exit strategies in risk sharing arrangements

The final installment of the series will address:

  • Part III – March 17: Joint Ventures and Restructurings for Financial Asset Businesses and Distressed Portfolios
