Risk Retention

"... an entire ecosystem has been created around financing the portion of risk in each deal that needs to be retained. Fund managers have created risk-retention funds that have lured billions of dollars from big institutions around the world. Some of these investors wouldn't have otherwise invested in CLOs, particularly the riskiest slices of them, because those pieces are often sold in small increments and sometimes aren't worth the time of big investors.

"Wells Fargo's David Preston estimates that more than $7 billion has been raised for such risk-retention funds since March 2016. It's unlikely that CLO managers will be eager to give up these investors, who seem to like the way this structure works."

"Jay Clayton, speaking at an event sponsored by New York University's School of Law, said investors still don't fully appreciate the threat posed by hackers. 'I am not comfortable that the American investing public understands the substantial risk that we face systemically from cyber issues and I would like to see better disclosure around that,' Mr. Clayton said. ... "Mr. Clayton said the SEC would investigate companies that mislead investors about material cyberrisks, but said the battle against hackers is much broader and shouldn't be waged in government 'silos.'" - The Wall Street Journal
