Asset-Backed Securitisation

Asset-Backed Securitisation

Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)

In a typical asset securitisation transaction, a separate legal entity known as a special purpose vehicle (SPV) is incorporated with a view to owning certain income-producing assets. Shares in the SPV are then issued to the Share Trustee by way of a Discretionary Trust, on trust, for the benefit of Beneficiaries upon the terms and conditions of the Trust Deed. The Trust shall be irrevocable.

Share Trustee

Pacific Trustees holds the legal ownership as Share Trustee for identified Beneficiaries in respect of assets to be transferred for a purpose or disposal of assets for repayment or holding shares for the proceeds to be utilised for repayment or financing of certain projects pursuant to the provisions of the Declaration of Trust, and relevant trust laws in Malaysia. Our team of professionals are highly experienced in complex restructuring schemes and asset securitisation involving government-linked companies as well as banking and financial institutions.

Independent Directorship

We also provide independent directorship services whereby our representatives will act as directors of the SPV, and do such acts and sign such documents as may be required to be done, or signed by the SPV, or by a director of the SPV. Furthermore, we will do all acts necessary within their powers to ensure the SPV continues as a going concern throughout the tenure of the asset-backed securitisation, including but not limited, to defending or setting aside all actions, suits, claims, winding-up, execution, foreclosure and arbitration proceedings instituted against the SPV.
