On 24 May 2021, the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) issued four questionnaires for industry participants on conduct risks in leveraged loans (LL) and collateralized loan obligations (CLO) targeting bank lenders, CLO investors, CLO managers and LL sponsors. The purpose of the questionnaires is to support IOSCO’s project by furthering its understanding of the LL and CLO markets. In particular, the questionnaires seek to determine where potential conflicts of interest and conduct issues may exist and how they are managed by the respective market participants. IOSCO will consider the questionnaire responses when formulating any report regarding LLs and CLOs.
The deadline for responding to the questionnaires is 30 June 2021.
