    • main factors• policy of deregulation of financial sector• government actions to help house purchase• historically low interest rates after 2001 (household debt ratio up)• speculation (buying houses on investment purposes)• extensive use of sub-prime loans• raise of shadow banking system• predatory lending• housing bubble (peaked in 2005-2006, burst in 2007)
    • ARM (adjustable-rate mortgages)• standard mortgage product• mortgage loan with variable (adjustable) interest rate• direct link to the underlying index or to bank policy• initial discounts (e.g. first year payments are interest only)• variable rate of the loan to offset variable interest rates of deposits• standard banking product commonly offered to customers
    • sub-prime lending• making loans to customers who might have difficulty with repayment schedule• compensate for higher credit risk – higher interest rates – less favourable than ordinary terms• targeting people with little or no assets, bad credit history, lower or unstable income• traditionally isolated from regular loans
    • securitization• Securitization - process in which loans or other income generating assets are bundled to create bonds which can be sold to investors.• What could be securitized: – home equity loans – mortgages and sub-prime mortgages – student loans – car loans – credit card payments – other
    • securitized instruments• ABS (asset-backed security) a security where value and income payments are derived from and collateralized (or "backed") by a specified pool of underlying assets• MBS (mortgage-backed security) as above ABS but used for mortgages• CDO (collateralized debt obligation) type of ABS with multiple "tranches" that are issued by special purpose entities and collateralized by debt obligations including bonds and loans
