KBRA Releases Structured Credit Research: Return of the TruPS - Overview of New Issue Bank and Insurance CDOs

September 21, 2018

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 21, 2018--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases a research report on newly issued Collateralized Debt Obligations (CDOs) containing bank and insurance securities. Many of these new deals are formed with a mix of collateral from legacy trust preferred securities (TruPS) CDOs issued prior to the financial crisis. The report compares these new deals to the legacy TruPS CDOs to highlight some key differences.

This research includes a brief overview of the different bank and insurance collateral types held by both recently issued CDOs and legacy TruPS CDOs. The new CDOs, containing different mixes of collateral types and with varying spreads and maturities on the assets, have amortization profiles that can substantially change from portfolio to portfolio. The report addresses unique risk factors embedded in the new CDOs and describes why a thorough analysis is necessary to gain an insight into the potential risks, including both default risk and prepayment risk. A side by side comparison is provided as a reference between legacy TruPS CDOs and new issue CDOs.

KBRA’s Structured Credit, Bank and Insurance teams will continue to work together in monitoring the market as this asset class continues to evolve.
