This 47 page papers examines the subject of securitization. The paper begins with a definition of asset backed securities (ABS) the market size and driving forces for ABS, the risks and opportunities for both companies and investors, their structure, the different classifications of ABS and how they may be valued. The United Sates and Japanese markets are then considered as developed ABS markets, with size, breakdown and systems outlined. The development in Taiwan as a very recent entrant into the securitization market is then discussed. The outlining of the development of the system leads to a SWOT analysis of the situation in Taiwan which is compared to other systems. This then gives the reader an indication of the way Taiwan should proceed if wishing to develop a thriving asset backed security market and the benefits that securitization could bring if the potential is realized. The bibliography cites 21 sources.
