Regulatory concerns about the impact of structured claims on financial stability in times of stress are frequently too sweeping and indistinct for a judicious assessment of how structured finance transactions might propagate asset shocks across different capital market segments. This brief chapter defines structured finance in order to inform a more specific debate about possible regulatory challenges posed by complex forms of credit risk transfer.
