Securitisation / CLO Trustee

When financial organisations create securities from loans and other income-producing assets which are sold to investors, it becomes imperative to protect their own investors’ interests. ​

At Vistra, we provide third-party independent services to the original lender of loans, securitisation of SPVs/trusts, and credit rating agencies' investors involved in these structured financing arrangements. ​

By acting as trustee in securitisation transactions, we play a critical part in helping protect your investors’ interests by performing a variety of roles, including monitoring compliance around securitisation of the trust.​

At Vistra, we can play a protective role  in the management of collateralised loan obligations (CLOs), monitoring covenants to identify early stages of default, communicating with investors, and coordinating with external legal counsel to enforce security or any other legal action. ​

We also act as an independent agency overseeing the entire default management process and distribute the proceeds if any assets are sold.  ​

The US Congress passed the Corporate Transparency Act in 2021 to create a beneficial ownership registry for US legal entities.

The regulations clarify who must file information, what information they must submit and when they must file. FinCEN’s new reporting requirements go into effect 1 January 2024.
Regulators, customers, investors and employees are demanding that environmental, social and governance principles drive how organisations operate and what they report on.
To take advantage of the global talent pool, companies are increasingly offering stock equity to attract and retain employees. The equity is usually awarded at a low cost in a pre-IPO phase, and in some cases involves globally mobile employees. Granting stock options to expatriate employees can introduce important tax obligations and risks in the home and host countries that are sometimes not fully understood by multinational employers.
