The Law of Transnational Securitization focuses on the legal aspects of securitization from a comparative and systemic perspective. It identifies specific problems that arise in the field of securitization, including transnational problems, and shows how to solve them within the legal andregulatory framework. The book covers securitization from a UK, European and US perspective throughout including reference to other jurisdictions including India.Securitization is a topical subject, as the securitization of mortgage receipts is seen as one of the causes of the financial crisis. There is now an increased focus on the legal, as opposed to transactional, aspects of securitization as it has come under intense scrutiny by regulators. This workexplains the situation and suggests ways to improve the system.The book begins by explaining the elements of a typical securitization transaction, along with different types of securitization, and provides an analysis of the role of securitization in the financial crisis and resulting legal challenges. It includes coverage of the interaction of securitizationwith creditor and investor protection rules, with an emphasis on insolvency law, involving such issues as a transaction's resilience to bankruptcy. Part III of the work analyses the liabilities of the sponsor/originator and the 'checks-and-balances' in their activity.

Finally, the book concludes with a detailed consideration of conflicts of laws and states' exercise of extraterritorial jurisdiction issues.
