The Corelux platform

Corelux is domiciled in Luxemburg and already complies with today's tougher regulatory requirements for securitisations. This puts the program at the forefront in this market segment. Purchases of receivables by Corelux are financed by issuing short-term commercial paper in Europe or the US. In addition, all of Corelux's liquidity requirements are provided by BayernLB.

In line with market practice, BayernLB guarantees to investors that the commercial paper will be repaid in full. Thus, investors also acquire a BayernLB risk, which is further secured by the purchased receivables portfolios.

The commercial paper is rated F1(sf) by Fitch and P1(sf) by Moody's.

BayernLB is one of the 12 founding banks of True Sales International GmbH (TSI). Since 2004, TSI has worked to promote securitisations based on German law and using a standardised procedure agreed by all market participants. Additionally, it aims to create a brand name for German securitisation transactions that stands for high quality in terms of transparency, investor information and market making.
