Citi And Santander Launch Trade MAPS – The First Multi-Bank Securitization Of Trade Finance Assets Totaling US$1 Billion

Stocks in this article: C SAN

Trade MAPS - the multi-bank asset participation program jointly deployed by Citi and Santander - has issued three-year rated asset backed securities of trade finance assets originated by the two banks.

The US$1 billion Reg. S/Rule 144A inaugural issue was launched off “Trade MAPS” – a global multi-bank program aimed at enhancing trade banks’ ability to support global trade flows and grow their trade finance portfolios. The program is intended to address the many challenges facing the banking industry including: capital management, liquidity, increased credit constraints and the new capital requirements imposed by Basel II and III.

The program offers trade banks the ability to fund their originated trade finance assets in a capital and balance sheet efficient manner through issuances of medium- term asset backed securities. Trade MAPS enables participating banks to increase the efficiency of their capital dedicated to trade.

In this transaction, Trade MAPS 1 Limited issued three-year term notes backed by corporate and financial institution-related trade finance loans originated by Citi and Santander. A total of four classes of notes were sold all of which were publicly rated by Standard & Poor’s and Fitch Ratings. Citi, Morgan Stanley and Santander were the Joint Book Runners.

The three-year US$874.4 million triple-A rated Class A Notes were sold at one-month Libor plus 0.70%, the three-year single-A rated Class B Notes raised US$77.6 million at one-month Libor plus 1.25%, the three-year triple-B rated Class C Notes raised US$31.3 million at one-month Libor plus 2.25% and the three-year split rated double-B/single-B rated Class D Notes raised US$16.6 million at one-month Libor plus 5.00%. An unrated equity tranche of US$41.1 million was retained by the originators Citi (US$14.8 million) and Santander (US$26.3 million).

The Trade MAPS Program uses a multi-jurisdictional structure created by Citi that enables both Citi and Santander branches or entities domiciled in Asia, Latin America, Europe, Middle East and North America to sell trade finance assets via multiple SPEs/Trusts. These entities then fund themselves through an offshore SPE - Trade MAPS 1 Limited.
