Securitisation

Work with the law firm at the forefront of securitisation

With the largest securitisation team in the region, we have been involved in almost every landmark securitisation transaction in the Australian market.  King & Wood Mallesons has acted as deal counsel on approximately 60% of all Australian public securitisation transactions since January 2013.

Our team works on an increasing number of major deals in Asia.  This includes the first publicly listed and rated corporate loan securitisation backed by a cross-border guarantee from a Chinese policy bank and the first public consumer finance-backed securities issuance in the Hong Kong SAR market.  We are also active in the Korean and China cross-border asset backed securities (ABS) markets.

Clients choose KWM to advise them on securitisation because they value our large and geographically diverse team’s expertise in key disciplines.  They value our co-ordinated approach to sharing new information, our capacity to analyse complex issues quickly, and our strong relationships with key industry players.  Our deep understanding of the market and commitment to knowing our client's business means that sponsors trust us with their securitisation programs, while investors trust us to protect their investment.
