Simple, transparent and standardised securitisation: Is it possible?

In the context of the capital markets union plan, the European Commission proposed an initiative to re-launch securitisation, with harmonised rules across the EU for a subset of standardised offerings, and with CRR amendments to adjust capital charges to provide for a more risk-sensitive treatment for such instruments. Securitisation is key to reduce balance sheets of banks and to make individual loans liquid. However, securitisation still raises eyebrows with many policy makers and users, and the question emerges whether the distinction can easily be made between standardised and transparent on the one hand, and complex, opaque and bespoke securitisations on the other. The intention of this debate is to discuss the feasibility of STS, and its potential.
