KBRA Releases Global Structured Finance Counterparty Methodology


Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases its methodology assessing
counterparty risk in structured finance transactions. The methodology
addresses risks related to financial counterparties such as swap and cap
providers, liquidity providers, letter of credit banks, and risks
related to transaction service counterparties such as servicers,
trustees and account banks. The methodology also addresses KBRA's
approach to reviewing eligibility criteria for permitted investments in
a structured finance transaction. This methodology serves as a general
framework for KBRA's approach to evaluating general counterparty risks
in structured finance transactions, although KBRA will continue to
review counterparty risks on a case-by-case basis.
