Why do banks securitize their assets?

Hello everyone,

Regarding securitization process, some benefits to the banks, who sell securitized assets to SPVs, are suggested by the curriculum such as increasing profitability and efficiency for the banks and that they can lend out more.

However, when selling those securitized assets, don’t banks sell them at present values (which means they give up all of the interests in the future)? If that is the case, are they actually increasing profitability through securitization and what is the point (to the banks) of getting money to lend out more?

Anyone please help me explain this.

Thanks.

Regarding the securitization process, How can we know if our personal loan has been securitized? And in case, if we can not fulfill an obligation, Do we receive presion from our Bank or from SPV directly? Excuse my ignorance in advance..

You’ll usually get notified by the new servicer that you need to send the payment to them, rather than to the bank.

I’m not sure what “presion” is.  If you mean “pression” or pressure, it will come from the SPV.

Forget it?  Why?  I think that it’s cool.

“Pression” is not a common word in English (I had to add it to the editor here because it thought that it was a misspelling), but that’s OK.  We need people to use uncommon words now and again, to remind us how rich our language is.
