KBRA Releases Global Structured Credit Rating Methodology


Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases its methodology for rating
structured credit transactions. The Global Structured Credit Methodology
addresses KBRA's approach to rating structured credit transactions
backed by portfolios of corporate credits, amongst others, including
transactions backed by corporate loan portfolios referred to as
Collateralized Loan Obligations (CLOs).

The rating determinants include: (i) Review and analysis of the
underlying collateral, (ii) Portfolio-level default analysis, (iii)
Transaction and structural analysis, including the review of transaction
documents, (iv) Cash-flow analysis, and (v) Review and analysis of the
collateral manager, when applicable.
