Sometimes, missing the boat is a blessing. Unlike a number of other Asian economies, and despite prodding by both industry participants and the international financial institutions, Viet Nam did not rush to put in place legislative frameworks to facilitate securitisation. Forgotten in the rush over the last two decades to replicate securitisation structures around the world has been how profoundly rooted they are in the contextual framework of the US economy and its regulatory system. This article looks at the basics of securitisation as it developed in the United States, how securitisation was reinvented elsewhere and investigates some of the experimentation with securitisation in Asia. The article identifies the major considerations important to implementation of securitisation in transition economies, in particular, Viet Nam.
