The risks and benefits of structured finance

If you are the owner of a business, you will know that a key part of successful growth is about gaining the right type of financing. Financing for businesses can be a great deal more complex than individual financing such as mortgages or loans. Structured financing options are created for borrowers who need financing on a large scale. In order to do this, they will want to make sure that they are minimizing their risk, and this is why the lending process becomes more complex.

Structured finance works with the borrower in mind and aims to help them finance their growth while dealing with debt and making sure that the debt is secure. There are both opportunities and risks associated with structured finances, and it is important to seek guidance to understand the intricacies of the law before committing to a structured finance plan.

Why can structured finance be beneficial?

Corporations, financial intermediaries and government entities can benefit from structured finance because it employs a complex tailored system to help the organization manage risk and economically prosper. There are many different tools that can be defined as a type of structured finance, and these can be implemented simultaneously to work symbiotically for the organization. These tools can include hybrid securities, collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs), export financing, debt restructuring, syndicated loans, and securitized debt through structures.

The risks that present themselves alongside structured financing products

All products have some amount of risk associated with them, so it is important that you get assistance with fully assessing the risk of any given product.

You should always consider the maturity date relating to a structured financing product. After the maturity date, the issue value can become completely worthless.

It is also important to consider the risk of foreign exchange rates if you are a multinational corporation. Currency rate fluctuations have the potential to severely affect the value of an asset.

Uncollateralized structured products are subject to risk because investments can be lost if the issuer becomes bankrupt.
