In March 2015, a delegation consisting of several SFIG members and staff attended the 2015 Annual Conference of the China Securitization Forum (“CSF”) at the Crowne Plaza, Beijing. The conference was well attended, with over 1,500 leading market participants, and covered topics important to the rapidly growing Chinese securitization marketplace. The theme of the conference was “Global Vision and Stable Development,” and SFIG served as Lead Association Sponsor.

The SFIG delegation participated in various panels and discussions, including the following highlights:

  • Richard Johns of SFIG gave the final day’s keynote address, covering the application of securitization to funding the real economy, key considerations in building new market liquidity, and the need for responsible and effective regulations.
  • Reggie Imamura of PNC moderated a panel discussion entitled: “The Importance of Securitization Finance in the Real Economy.” Panel participants included: Li Ren of Orient Securities Asset Management, Richard Mertl of Schulte Roth & Zabel, Elen Callahan of Deutsche Bank, and Addison Everett of PricewaterhouseCoopers.
  • Jason Kravitt of Mayer Brown spoke on an ABS 101 session entitled: “US Securitization Structures: An overview of the structural features, transaction counterparties and transaction documents that go into a plain vanilla US securitization deal.” He also moderated a panel discussion entitled: “Cross-border deals and international experience - U.S. Regulatory Reform: Lessons Learned for the Chinese Markets.” Panel participants included Sairah Burki of SFIG, Howard Kaplan of Deloitte & Touche LLP, Catherine McCarihan of Bank of America, Sam Pilcer of Credit Agricole CIB, and Ann Rutledge of R&R Consulting.
  • Ted Breck of Bank of America gave a presentation entitled: “Key Components to Ensuring a New Market has Liquidity.”

In addition, SFIG helped in presenting various Chinese industry awards.

SFIG and CSF also signed a memorandum of strategic cooperation last year, agreeing to promote comprehensive cooperation between Chinese and U.S. securitization markets, including organizing delegations to attend one another’s annual conferences.

Throughout the conference, SFIG had several important regulatory meetings, including State Administration of Foreign Exchange, People’s Bank of China, Chinabond/Credit Asset Registration & Trading Center, National Association of Financial Market Institutional Investors, and Asset Management Association of China.
