TMF Group Ireland


Structured Finance

Profile: TMF Group is one of the largest and most experienced administrators of structured finance entities in the world, providing services to more than 2,000 special purpose vehicles (SPVs) across all leading onshore and offshore jurisdictions.

We are innovators in this sector: our staff played a pioneering role in the management of the first wave of securitisation structures in the US in the 1970s and then in Europe in the 1990s. We were engaged in managing the first European CDO transactions in 1999 and the first major European synthetic CDO transaction in 2002. Currently, we administer around 200 CLO/CDO structures - one of the largest global portfolios of this kind.

Working extensively with the originators of securitised assets, financial institutions, investment managers, arrangers, trustees, investors, collateral managers and regulators, we offer a comprehensive suite of services that can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of each transaction. With more than 150 structured finance specialists in a wider team 4,000 legal and accounting professionals across 75 countries, our global reach and capabilities in this sector are unique.
  • We deliver a seamless, fully-integrated service across the globe and can provide a single point of contact for all international structures. Our experience spans the full range of asset classes, including static and managed structures, cash and synthetic transactions, and performing and non-performing loans. We work with all types of derivatives, including interest rate and currency swaps, total return swaps, credit default swaps and options.
  • We are committed to offering the full range of services required for the establishment, operation and management of SPVs, and appoint experienced, knowledgeable directors from within our teams to manage our portfolio of SPVs. Our specialist legal and accounting teams ensure that our corporate governance and financial management are carried out to the highest standards.
  • It is critical to ensure that all SPVs are fully compliant with all local laws and regulations – and the regulatory reporting burden for CLOs and other securitisation structures is increasing. Our colleagues around the world carefully monitor all regulatory developments and ensure that SPVs remain fully compliant at all times. There are several new reporting obligations in 2013; the most notable is registration and reporting under the US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA).
