Financial vehicle corporations balance sheets

The tables and charts in this document show outstanding amounts and transactions on the balance sheets of financial vehicle corporations (FVCs) engaged in securitisation transactions. Euro area statistical series refer to the changing composition of the euro area.
Euro area countries with no resident financial vehicle corporations are excluded from the tables.

"Traditional securitisation" refers to securitisation in which transfer of the credit risk of an asset or pool of assets is achieved either by the transfer of legal title to (or beneficial interest in) the asset/s to the FVC, or through sub-participation.
"Synthetic securitisation" refers to securitisation in which transfer of the credit risk of an asset or pool of assets is achieved by the use of credit derivatives, guarantees or a similar mechanism.
"Other financial vehicle corporations" refers to financial vehicle corporations which are not engaged in either traditional securitisation or synthetic securitisation.
