Collateralised Loan Obligations (CLOs) have evolved considerably over the last decade, with adjustments leading to an evolution of CLO structures to ensure they continue to appeal to investors, as well as fulfilling a useful function in the capital markets.
CLOs have a number of notable features which distinguish them from other classes of securitisation, which we explore in this paper. In addition we examine the current state of CLO regulation in Europe (under the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) and the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD)), and in the United States (under Dodd-Frank). We also consider how that regulation has evolved and what may be in store for the future.
