Panel: New structures, new choices
The days of the plain vanilla CLO are over, with a host of new structural innovations bringing a new diversity for investors. Some innovations are dramatic- CBOs, high-CCC deals and AMR structures are all very different vehicles to the traditional CLO. But even within the more traditional approach the product is diversifying, with short-dated deals and fixed-rate notes showing recent popularity. This panel explores which of these innovations are gaining most popularity, who is driving their appearance, and the advantages and disadvantages they present comparing with traditional 2.0 CLOs.
Presentation: Unlocking the optionality of refis and resets
As spreads continue to widen the age of the refi may be over for traditional CLOs, but AMR technology continues to offer investors a route to unlocking the value of their options. AMR experts KopenTech explain how the process works, and why it is still relevant even at wider spreads.
