CLOs as an Asset Class During the GFC

In Ian's final video on CLOs, he takes elements discussed in his previous two videos and explains how these factors played out during the financial crisis.
Overview

In the summer of 2007, liquidity, credit and market risk posed a significant threat to the CLO market. CLOs held up relatively well during the crisis, however, the losses that did occur, were caused almost entirely by investors not having access to term funding.

  • Discuss the role of rating agencies during this time

  • Explain the overall impact liquidity had on the CLO market
