Korea Shipowners Association seeks a boost from the FSCThe Korea Shipowners Association yesterday asked the Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC) to ease the regulation on primary collateralized bond obligations.
The P-CBO is a form of asset-backed securities with a pool of newly issued bonds as underlying assets. It is designed to help low-rated companies sell bonds.
The FSC in July announced it would support issuing 6.4 trillion won ($5.9 billion) worth of P-CBO, but all 30 shippers, which want their bonds included in the P-CBO last month, failed to get approval.
The association urged the government to ease the P-CBO regulation by lowering the bar for credit rating and a company’s debt ratio so more shippers can qualify for financial help.
