The Legacy Loans Program is an elaborate way of slicing the FDIC’s receivership assets. At best, the financial structure is irrelevant to the FDIC’s expected long-run recovery rates. Yet, it may boost short-term prices by creating bond insurance liabilities that will come due several years down the road. If the private investor can increase the value of the toxic loans through non-contractible investments, then the public equity stake and subsidized leverage may hinder the FDIC from obtaining the best recovery rates from these troubled loan portfolios.
