Survey on securitisation markets conducted by BCBS-IOSCO Task Force

3 July 2014

Press release

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) and the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) are co-leading a task force that will undertake a wide-ranging survey of securitisation markets worldwide.

Established in consultation with the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), the cross-sectoral Task Force on Securitisation Markets will:

  • survey securitisation markets with the aim of understanding how they are evolving in different parts of the world;
  • identify factors that may be hindering the development of sustainable securitisation markets;
  • assess whether there are factors inhibiting the participation of investors, particularly non-bank investors; and
  • develop criteria to identify and assist in the development of simple and transparent securitisation structures.

To gain a better understanding of market participants' views, the Task Force has set up an online survey, which should be completed by Friday 25 July 2014. Any non-public information provided will be treated confidentially.

Market participants are encouraged to participate in this survey as their experience and views will be a useful and important input into this review. The Basel Committee and IOSCO would like to thank in advance all survey respondents for their feedback and insights.
