Securitisation - Australia

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. In 2013, 27 of 47 public securitisation transactions in Australia were documented by the King & Wood Mallesons team. Our team also works on an increasing number of major deals in Asia – including the first publicly listed and rated corporate loan securitisation backed by a cross-border guarantee from a Chinese policy bank.

Why do so many clients choose us to advise them on securitisation? They value our large and geographically diverse team’s expertise in key disciplines.
