Significant Risk Transfer (SRT)

Regulatory Capital Relief for Banks

Significant Risk Transfer (SRT) is a portfolio-level financial deleveraging strategy that offers banks regulatory capital relief, providing a competitive advantage for insured banks to grow their business. Regulatory capital requirements, which vary by country, allow banks to sell a designated percentage of portfolio assets in compliance with extensive rule-based requirements for transactions that are tranched and securitized.

Through our strategic partnership with the Nexus Group, Nexus C&F offers SRT insurance policies for U.K. and Continental European clients that are typically underwritten on Nexus Group’s European platforms. To learn more, contact David Wright at [email protected].

SRT Insurance Solutions

Portfolio-based SRT transactions typically involve corporate loan assets but other asset types can be included, such as infrastructure, project finance and mortgage-backed loans. The insurer’s and asset manager’s involvement is via non-payment default insurance policies and funded note participations, respectively.

SRT offers non-renewable insurance coverage providing credit protection, typically for a period of 3 to 5 years, and can be refreshed in alignment with portfolio allocation of risk. SRT insurance eases the bank’s non-payment exposure on a range of assets and reduces capital allocation requirements for more efficient, profitable portfolio management.
