Basel Committee and IOSCO launch securitisation survey: The Basel Committee and The International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO), together with IAIS and the International Accounting Standards Board, have formed a cross-sectoral task force to survey securitisation markets. Their first initiative is a questionnaire to gather views from market participants. The aim is to understand their evolution, sustainability and availability to non-bank investors. The task force will also assist in the development of simple and transparent securitisation structures. (Source: Questionnaire on Developments in Securitisation Markets)
