Distressed Assets: Banks Look to Investors for Bailout

July 13, 2010 2:45 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions

Regardless of how financial institutions ultimately have used TARP funds, the Treasury's original goal was to restore liquidity in the mortgage-back securities and whole-loan trading markets. However, the whole-loan trading market never suffered. Throughout the "Great Recession" the secondary market for whole-loan trading has remained active, highlighting opportunities for private investors to earn decent returns while restoring further liquidity in the financial industry.

This presentation provided an overview of distressed asset trading and addressed the following specific topics:

  • Market activity related to mortgage loans, C&I loans, and stock loans (including bank stock loans)
  • Trading terms
  • Strategies for loss and risk mitigation
  • Regulatory issues involved with trading
