What are Collateralized Loan Obligations (CLO)?
Collateralized loan obligations (CLO) are securities that are backed by a pool of loans. In other words, CLOs are repackaged loans that are sold to investors. They are similar to a collateralized mortgage obligation (CMO), except that the underlying instruments are loans instead of mortgages.
Understanding Collateralized Loan Obligations
With a collateralized loan obligation, debt payments from the underlying loans are pooled together and distributed to investors of various tranches in the CLO.
