Private debt through credit risk sharing

The credit risk sharing (CRS) market opened up in the wake of the financial crisis of 2007-9. It has expanded significantly since then, spurred by changes in European regulations that increased capital requirements on bank lending activities as a means to improve financial stability.

In this paper, we explain CRS and the key benefits it can offer to institutional investors, particularly in today’s uncertain economic climate.

Individual portfolio management teams may hold different views and may take different investment decisions for different clients. This document does not constitute investment advice. The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial outlay. Past performance is no guarantee for future returns. Investing in emerging markets, or specialised or restricted sectors is likely to be subject to a higher-than-average volatility due to a high degree of concentration, greater uncertainty because less information is available, there is less liquidity or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions). Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk.
