How Do SPVs Work?

Also known as special purpose entities (SPE), the SPV must conduct business in its own name, hold itself out as a separate entity and maintain an arm’s length relationship with any affiliates. Special purpose vehicles are formed in conjunction with:

– real estate finance transactions
– tax and risk management strategies
– project finance transactions
– trademarks and intellectual property protection
– bankruptcy remote entities
– holding company investment portfolios
– asset-backed securitizations
– collateralized debt obligations
– life insurance securitizations
– and other types of special purpose vehicles

The SPV’s organizational documents and/or transaction documents should include separateness covenants designed to provide legal comfort that the SPV will operate as an independent entity.

What is SPV Management?

SPV management is the administration of necessary business functions to keep the parent and subsidiary companies separate from each other, in order to fully meet all legal requirements.

What is an SPV and why is it established?

An SPV is a subsidiary created by a parent company to isolate financial risk. Its legal status as a separate company makes its obligations secure even if the parent company goes bankrupt. The SPV’s assets, liabilities and equity will be recorded on its own balance sheet so the financial information of the SPV may not appear on the parent company’s balance sheet as equity or debt.

What are examples of an SPV?

A company operating in the SBA sector enters into a securitization to collateralize SBC (small balance commercial) loans. The issuing entity is a Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) and a Delaware/Nevada SPV is the Depositor. The Depositor purchases the loans from the Originator. The Trust issues certificates to the Depositor for the loans and the Depositor sells the Certificates to investors.
