Securitisation Award Nominee: PGGM

About the Securitisation Award 2016

The Securitisation Award recognises outstanding achievement or a transaction, initiative or organisation that had a significant positive contribution to or impact on the (Dutch) securitisation market in 2015/2016.

Three initiatives have been nominated by an independent advisory board.


Within Europe, PGGM  plays a unique part in stimulating and participating in synthetic securitisation transactions.

Reaction Mascha Canio, head of structured credit and insurance linked securities, PGGM: ”PGGM is extremely pleased to be recognised for its role in the securitisation market through this nomination. Thanks to the commitment of our client PFZW we have been able to build valuable partnerships with banks to share in the credit risks they originate and carry on their balance sheet, and as a result contribute to lending to the real economy. At the same time the risk sharing transactions facilitate a stronger financial sector by distribution of credit risk from banks to institutional investors. We are convinced that our synthetic securitisations could meet slightly adjusted STS criteria which are now being formulated to regulate the securitisation market in the EU.’’

At the Securitisation Event 2016, 21 and 22 april in Amsterdam, participants will determine this year’s winner by popular vote. Nominees will each get the chance to pitch their motivation why they should win the prestigious Securitisation Award 2016.
