The new, updated version confirms John's status as the top writer in this sector. Securitisation has moved on, becoming ever more complex in both its detail and its variety, but John's book never fails to deal with all the intellectual challenges posed, in a clear, logical and comprehensive fashion. A must for all practitioners- ? I thoroughly enjoyed it."

The book comprehensively outlines the various structures encountered, ranging from true sale and future flow financings to synthetics and whole business, addressing not only the framework of the structures but also the regulatory and accounting implications. A must have reference book."

Synthetic credit derivatives technology, CDOs, the covered bond market, the mortgage-backed market and M&A financing have all come together to make securitization the fastest growing and most flexible area of the global credit markets. This authoritative work looks at the recent synthetic structures and credit derivatives used in CDOs and at the new Basel Capital Accord and addresses the framework of these structures as well as the regulatory and accounting implications. You'll find truly global insights, coverage of both the financial and legal aspects of securitization, and a glossary of market and legal terminology.
