Chris Wilson, chief financial officer of RedZed, commented: “This transaction is RedZed’s first risk retention compliant transaction, and our largest securitisation to date. 

“We are pleased to see significant interest across all tranches of the transaction from new and existing investors, which signifies a strong commitment to our securitisation program and confidence in RedZed’s experience in lending to the self-employed borrower segment.”

CBA and NAB acted as joint lead managers on the transaction, which is due to settle on 31 March 2021.

According to Moody’s and Fitch preliminary ratings, the $412.5-million Class A-1 Notes and the $64.9-million Class A-2 notes were rated Aaa(sf)/AAAsf.
