  • Systems and Controls for the Use of Securitisations

    • PIB 4.14.3

      An Authorised FirmG must implement and maintain appropriate risk management systems to identify, manage, monitor and, where applicable, control all risks in relation to a securitisation transaction whether the firm is an investor, OriginatorG or SponsorG . In particular, such risk management systems should effectively address the following risks:

      (a) the liquidity and capital implications that may arise from the items returning to the balance sheet;
      (b) the Operational RisksG that may arise under a securitisation; and
      (c) reputational risks that may arise as a result of its securitisation activities.

    • PIB 4.14.4

      An Authorised FirmG must have appropriate policies and procedures to ensure that the economic substance of the transaction is fully reflected in the process of managing the risks arising from such transactions. An Authorised FirmG must have appropriate policies and procedures in place to document its systems and controls in relation to securitisation risks. These policies should include details on the capital effects of the securitisation as set out in this chapter.

    • PIB 4.14.5

      • PIB 4.14.5 Guidance

        1. The periodic stress testing in relation to securitisation activities referred to in PIB Rule 4.14.5 should consider the firm-wide impact of those activities and ExposuresG in stressed market conditions and the implications for other sources of risk. Such stress tests should include both existing securitisation ExposuresG and transactions in the pipeline, as there is a risk of the pipeline transactions not being completed in a stressed market scenario.
        2. The frequency and extent of stress testing to fulfil the requirements of PIB Rule 4.14.5 should be determined on the basis of the materiality of the Authorised Firm'sG securitisation volumes and its off-balance sheet ExposuresG .
        3. An Authorised FirmG should have procedures in place to assess and respond to the results produced from the stress testing and these should be taken into account under the ICAAPG .

      (c) a thorough understanding of all structural features of a securitisation transaction that would materially impact the performance of the Authorised Firm'sG ExposureG to the transaction, such as waterfall triggers, Credit EnhancementsG , liquidity enhancements, market value triggers and deal specific definitions of default.
