Securitisation seems to seeing the light of the day in Russia, with banks planning to securitise Diversified Payment Rights (DPR, payments due from companies and individuals availing banking services in Russia), with International Finance Corporation acting as the lead investor; banks securitizing mortgage loans and car loans. The issuances will be first securitization since 2008 crisis.
