Financial Vehicle Corporations

Introduction

Irish-resident securitisation vehicles (FVCs) are obliged to report quarterly data to the Central Bank under Regulation ECB/2013/40 and the Central Bank Acts 1942-2013. Article 1 of the ECB Regulation defines which entities qualify as securitisation vehicles for the purposes of the quarterly reporting requirement. 

Additional ECB guidance is also available:
