Common EU rules on securitisation become applicable

New rules to revive the EU's securitisation market became directly applicable in all EU Member States as of 1 January, the European Commission reported.

They are an important building block of the Capital Markets Union and will bring real benefits to investment, jobs and growth, Vice President Valdis Dombrovskis (pictured) said. The new harmonised securitisation rules will help provide additional funding sources for companies, strengthen banks' ability to support the economy and spread risks across market participants, while avoiding the excesses that led to the financial crisis.
