Press Release: Announcing Establishment of Asian Securitization Forum
(June 11, 2001)



To promote the fast-growing business of securitization in Asia and the Pacific, securitization professionals have constituted a body called the Asian Securitization Forum. The Forum has been setup under a not-for-profit company registered in India.

The basic objective of the Forum is to provide a platform for interaction, sharing of information and propagation of securitization activity. The Forum will also lobby with regulators in different countries in the region to foster a congenial environment for securitization activity.

Headquartered in Mumbai, India, the Forum will have a region-wide presence.

Vinod Kothari, a leading securitization consultant and trainer has taken over as the Executive Director of the Forum. A Governing Body consisting of eminent securitization professionals from all over the region will be constituted soon.

Securitization is growing fast in Asia. The rate of growth in Japan has been spectacular, but in other Asian and Pacific countries, it is still facing a number of impediments. The Forum will use its collective strength to share information, focus opinion to remove environmental problems, standardize procedures, etc.

A full featured website of the Forum has also been launched at:ΓΏ
