Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility Summary

Summary Information

  • New York Federal Reserve (NY Fed) will make up to $1 trillion of non-recourse loans to Eligible Borrowers, secured by Eligible ABS.
  • TALF will begin lending in March 2009 and continue through December 31, 2009, unless the program is extended.
  • US Treasury will provide $20 billion of first-loss protection to NY Fed under the TALF in the event of collateral default.
  • Borrowers will access TALF through Primary Dealers, who will act as agent and deliver Eligible ABS to a Custodian Bank. (See Exhibit D for list of Primary Dealers).
  • All settlements have to clear through the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”).
  • NY Fed will establish an SPV that will purchase any Eligible ABS collateral the NY Fed receives if a borrower under a TALF loan puts the collateral to the NY Fed in satisfaction of the loan.
  • US Treasury will provide the first $20 billion of funding to that SPV, in the form of a subordinated note purchase.
  • NY Fed will make a senior loan to the SPV to fund any purchases of Eligible ABS above the $20 billion provided by the US Treasury.
  • All cash flows on SPV assets will repay the NY Fed's senior loan first, and the US Treasury's subordinated notes will absorb first losses on any ABS collateral owned by the SPV.
