Asset Repackaging in Asia

From a simple technique for creating synthetic securities through applying interest rate or currency swaps to eurobonds alone, repackaging has developed into a global market through which almost any asset which generates a predictable cashflow is capable of being transformed into a security.

The purpose of such repackagings is to enable investors to access markets and to invest in specific assets that, for tax or regulatory reasons, they may be unable or unwilling to do directly. Repackagings also allow investors to invest in synthetic assets - for example, US dollar bonds backed by Thai Baht bills of exchange.

This inaugural edition, sponsored by Simmons & Simmons, features a series of overview articles on the fundamentals supporting repackaging transactions, including an assessment of taxation issues. The Guide also contains in-depth reports on selection markets in Asia, examining legal frameworks, the granting of security, taxation, regulatory and accounting guidelines, and market outlooks.
