Securitisation is a process whereby finance can be raised from external investors by enabling them to invest in parcels of specific financial assets. Domestic mortgage loans are so far the most common type of assets to be securitised in the United Kingdom, but in principle the technique can readily be extended to other assets, such as credit card receivables, other consumer loans, lease receivables and so on.
