The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) and the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) have announced that they will be co-leading a cross-sectoral task force that will undertake a wide-ranging review of securitisation markets worldwide.

As part of the review, which aims to gain a better understanding of how securitisation markets are evolving around the world, the task force has published an online questionnaire for market participants. The questionnaire should be completed by 25 July 2014. A similar questionnaire will be used to survey regulatory authorities.

Through the review, the task force will:

  • survey securitisation markets with the aim of understanding how they are evolving in different parts of the world;
  • identify factors that may be hindering the development of sustainable securitisation markets;
  • assess whether there are factors inhibiting the participation of investors, particularly non-bank investors; and
  • develop criteria to identify and assist in the development of simple and transparent securitisation structures.
