Securitization, Structured Finance, and Capital Markets provides an introduction to securitization as a method of financing. It is suitable for an independent course or seminar in securitization and structured finance, and may also be used as supplementary reading or as advanced examples in courses in bankruptcy, secured transactions, trusts, corporations, securities regulation, corporate finance, tax, banking, or accounting. The book is organized by substantive legal areas. The first chapter provides an overview of securitization and is a terrific starting point for anyone trying to learn more about this $6 trillion industry where assets as diverse as car loans, credit card debt, student loans, home mortgages, and commercial mortgages are securitized to provide the loan originator with a source of capital at lower cost than might otherwise be available. The first chapter introduces securitization through a detailed discussion of an actual securitization of loans made to purchasers of Hondas. The Honda deal is followed as an example throughout the subsequent chapters and numerous documents from the deal are reprinted in the book. Students should benefit from the concrete example and the opportunity to examine the actual legal documents used to implement this type of financing transaction. Subsequent chapters of the book examine Article 9 of the UCC, the Bankruptcy Code, accounting issues, tax and other considerations, securities laws, and the Investment Company Act. There is a separate chapter focused on special concerns of banks securitizing loans, a chapter on international and cross-border issues in securitization, and a concluding chapter exploring the academic debate relating to the efficiency of securitization. Each chapter of the book contains discussion questions.

In 2009, high-profile fraud cases like the Ponzi schemes of Bernard Madoff and Arthur Nadel vividly illustrated the harm done to investors who placed their trust in these apparently successful money managers and then discovered their money had never been invested at all. News stories featured 90-year-olds forced by necessity to work in supermarkets, elderly people losing their homes because their life savings were gone, and wealthy retirees suddenly unable to pay their electricity bills. Charities were forced to curtail their services, lay off staff, and even close their doors forever as their funds evaporated. Almost every day, there are stories in the media about dishonest employees who have robbed their organisations of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Not so well-publicised are the countless smaller thefts occurring every day from cash registers, warehouses, and business bank accounts. Sadly, the organisations that have the most to lose small businesses, family-run companies, churches, and charities are often the most vulnerable because of their size and inexperience. According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, accounting fraud cost over $994 billion in 2008, and the average organisation lost 7 percent of its total revenue to fraud. How can you prevent this from happening to you as an investor, business owner, or a person attempting to acquire or merge with another firm? Read this book and you will be able to understand, detect, and avoid accounting fraud. You will learn how to identify fraud, how to spot minor abnormalities that may hide fraud, how to spot forgeries, and how to prove your case, as well as what to immediately suspect and methods for uncovering scams. You will know what signs to look for, including excessive turnover of lawyers and auditors, changing professionals in the middle of a transaction, inconsistent information, and significant declines in stock prices. In addition, you will know how to recognise the common manoeuvres, earnings manipulation, premature and fictitious revenue, overvalued assets, undervalued liabilities, bogus revenue, expenses that have been shifted to another period, overstating revenues, understating expenses, and the misuse and misdirecting of funds. This new book is filled with studies and discussions of fraud cases and how they could have been avoided, checklists for detecting accounts misdeeds, and advice from analysts, CFOs, and CPAs. This manual will be an indispensable aid for serious investors, industry pros, acquisition and merger managers, and small business owners alike. After reading this book you will no longer have to worry about accounting fraud and you can increase your company's profits.

This book is not a slimmed-down Accounting for Lawyers casebook, but a book especially designed as an auxiliary book for other courses that draw on accounting. It is brief, inexpensive, and gives students a plain English, sometimes even humorous, introduction to the basics of accounting and to the financial concepts of present value and expected value. It allows students to learn the essential accounting concepts outside of class so professors can spend more of valuable class time focusing on the core concepts of a course. The chapters are short and modular, so professors can assign as much or as little as students need to know for a course.

Many lawyers, especially those dealing with commercial matters, need to understand accounting yet feel on shaky ground in the area. This book is written specifically for them. It breaks down and makes clear basic concepts (such as the difference between profit and cash flow), the accounting profession and the legal and regulatory framework within which accounting operates. The relevant provisions of the Companies Act 1985 are discussed at some length. Holgate explains generally accepted accounting principles in the UK (GAAP), the trend towards global harmonisation and the role of international accounting standards. He then deals with specific areas such as group accounts, acquisitions, tax, leases, pensions, financial instruments, and realised profits, focusing in each case on those aspects that are likely to confront lawyers in their work. This book will appeal to the general practitioner as well as to lawyers working in corporate, commercial, and tax law.
