Introduction

ESG considerations are becoming increasingly important in regulatory analysis and decision-making, with the EU recently introducing its Taxonomy Regulation for Sustainable Activities, as well as legislation to integrate sustainability into the wider securitisation framework. Nevertheless, the securitisation asset class remains a laggard when compared to the incorporation of ESG practices across other financial markets. This seminar examines the role that securitisation can play in sustainable finance and the challenges that need to be overcome to achieve its potential.

Agenda

  • 2 February 2022
    This panel provides an overview of the EU’s policies and regulation focused on ESG objectives, in connection with securitisation. Are the EU Taxonomy and SFDR fit for purpose and which best practices can the securitisation industry adopt to comply with their requirements? What are the latest developments regarding the EBA’s framework for sustainable securitisation?
    Panel Includes:
    Leanne Banfield, Linklaters (Moderator)
    Sean Kidney, Climate Bonds Initiative
    Simi Arora-Lalani, Clifford Chance
    Tamar Joulia, IACPM
    Key to the development of a sustainable securitisation market is the ability of originators and servicers to provide clear disclosures related to relevant ESG factors, as well as investors’ ability to perform due diligence on these ESG factors. Which ESG factors are important in the context of securitisation and what reporting requirements are investors seeking? How should ESG disclosures be defined and standardised? What internal procedures should originators put in place to ensure their disclosures are appropriate and is upfront reporting as important as ongoing reporting?
    Panel Includes:

    Soojean Choi, Clifford Chance (Moderator)
    Tina De Baere, Cairn Capital
    Elizabeth Crawford, TCW
    David Saunders, Santander
    The lack of adequate data is hindering investors from systematically integrating ESG factors in their analysis of securitisations. Which types of ESG data is required by investors? What infrastructure is necessary for this data to be collected, standardised, monitored and benchmarked? How important are originator/servicer/counterparty ESG profiles for investors and how can lack of coverage from data vendors be overcome?
    Panel Includes:
    Fatima Hadj, Climate Action Women
    Recent ESG securitisations have included frameworks for a portfolio’s compliance with sustainability criteria and/or a sustainability section in the offering circular. Which features should these frameworks incorporate? How important is third-party verification of such frameworks? How should investors approach credit risk assessment beyond traditional fundamental analysis and what role do rating agency methodologies play in this regard?
    Panel Includes:
    Emile Boustani, Societe Generale
    Alien Pauw, PGGM
    Appetite among investors for sustainable investments continues to rise, but the growth of the ESG securitisation market is constrained by the limited supply of compliant underlying assets. Can focusing on use of proceeds and transition securitisations overcome the paucity of ‘green’ collateral? Which underlying assets have the greatest potential to be securitised in ESG transactions or secure sustainability-linked bonds? Is the inclusion of ESG sector exclusions and ESG-linked margin ratchets a desirable trend in the CLO sector? Is a spread premium likely to materialise for ESG-compliant securitisations?
    Panel Includes:
    Julia Tsybina, Clifford Chance (Moderator)
    Elena Rinaldi, Twentyfour Asset Management
    Andrew Lennox, Federated Hermes
    Alex Maddox, Kensington Mortgages
    Max Bronzwaer, Prime Collateralised Securities
