structured finance, securitization and derivatives  

 

In today's global markets, financial institutions and other businesses are on the look-out for new ways to reduce financing costs and mitigate risk. Finance professionals have developed a variety of complex financial instruments and structures which, in turn, have led to a multitude of new hedging and investment strategies, financing alternatives, and balance sheet enhancement opportunities.

McMillan's Financial Services Group is a recognized leader in developing and structuring sophisticated financial instruments. We regularly advise sellers, multi- and single-seller conduit sponsors, special-purpose vehicles, servicers, credit enhancers, liquidity providers and rating agencies, and have established a variety of domestic and cross-border securitization structures including asset-backed commercial paper conduits, public and privately placed term transactions and concurrent leases.

McMillan helps clients navigate complex transactions through the changing regulatory landscape. We have extensive Canadian and international experience in structuring and implementing domestic and cross-border, over the counter (OTC) and exchange-traded derivatives transactions, and advising clients on OTC and exchange-traded derivatives regulation, taxation and documentation.

Our professionals are active in all aspects of the domestic and cross-border securitization markets and, as products continue to evolve and the regulatory environment for derivatives becomes increasingly complex, we keep pace with the rapidly changing industry to ensure we are consistently providing practical and innovative advice to our clients.

McMillan professionals help clients lead by:

  • Structuring and implementing assets such as residential and commercial mortgages, trade receivables, government receivables, credit cards, automobile and equipment loans and leases, and personal lines of credit
  • Structuring and implementing OTC and exchange-traded derivatives
  • Establishing a variety of securitization structures, including asset-backed commercial paper conduits, term transactions and concurrent leases
