Malaket to shed light on the future of this function in a digital world.


Essentials: Synthetic Securitization
Luigi La Ferla & Kah Chye Tan

The purchase of credit protection on one (or more) tranches of a portfolio of exposures is known as “Synthetic Securitisation” and better understood as the originating bank’s ability to sell their trade finance exposure to institutional investors.  However, has been hampered by idiosyncrasies of the asset class and the lack of globally accepted standards and independent service providers.  What can be done?  How can this interesting proposal be better understood and proliferated?

Sharing his expertise with us is a new speaker: Luigi La Ferla, Partner and Head of Trade Finance at Markham Rae LLP and also returning to lead the conversation is Kah Chye Tan, CEO of Tin Hill Capital Private Limited and co-Founder of the ICC Academy.
