Firminy Capital Sarl Features CDOs in Its Structured Finance Offerings

Luxembourg-based investment company Firminy Capital Sarl features several securitization funds in its financial offerings. In order to maximize the return on investment on these kinds of investments, Firminy Capital Sarl works with a wide range of assets and is highly recognized as a provider for structured financing.Structured financing entails complicated financial transactions that are geared toward the special financing requirements of institutional clients. Usually, these prerequisites do not meet the criteria set for traditional financial instruments or loans. One of the instruments used in a structured finance transaction is a collateralized debt obligation (CDO). This kind of structured investment pools assets together that generate a good cash flow and transforms the collection into rated and distinct tranches. Each tranche is comprised of such assets as bonds, loans, or mortgages. The debt obligations, which carry varying risks and maturities, act as the collateral for the instrument. Senior tranches in a CDO are considered safer than junior tranches, as they possess a higher credit score and have a lower risk of default.CDOs then provide investors, such as banks or insurance companies, with cash flows that are tiered, giving clients the chance to reap better results than what can be achieved through treasury or government instruments.
