Penetration in Developing Regions Is Key to Securities Market Growth, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) September 16, 2008

The securities industry is extremely competitive and cyclical in nature, resulting in extensive revenue fluctuations for the securities firms. The crucial income source for security firms is brokerage earnings, and profits of these companies move in tune with transaction volumes in major stock exchanges. Trading volumes in stock exchanges depend on many factors, including investor confidence, corporate earnings, economic scenario, capital flow, political stability and strength of the capital markets. Security companies emphasized on value added services, including agency services for mutual funds and unit trusts in an effort to withstand market fluctuations, control operational costs and spread out the income sources. Global market for securities is fostered by developing regions including Asia, Middle East, Latin America and Eastern Europe. Major financial institutions including banks are using securitization, in particular, hedge funds and specialist ABS funds, as the preferred forms of funding, thus driving up the total securitization sector.

Mortgage-Backed Securities (MBS) market is growing rapidly with rise in bond issuance on an annual basis. Major types of MBS include collateralized mortgage obligations, and agency and non-agency pass-throughs. Noteworthy factors driving growth in MBS market include rise in cash-out refinancing, issuance of non-agency residential mortgage-backed securities and change of adjustable rate mortgage to fixed rate mortgages. Future growth in the MBS market would largely be driven by the demand for housing and auto loans and issuance of commercial mortgage-backed securities supported by rise in leasing and occupancy rate, low level of unemployment, and rise in corporate profits.

Global Collateralized Debt Obligation (CDO) market experienced a rapid market expansion in line with rise in issuance of CDO securities. Both hybrid and cash flow CDOs dominate the global CDO sector, followed by synthetic funded and market value. In terms of issuance, arbitrage CDOs dominates the CDO market with nearly 90% share and balance sheet CDOs accounts for the remaining share of the market. CDO sector is supported by Structured Finance Collateral (SSF) group that includes various types of collateral such as Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities (RMBS), Collateralized Mortgage Obligations (CMOs), Asset-backed securities (ABS), Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities (CMBS) and CDS.

Players operating in the securities market are subject to various factors undermining growth such as the upcoming substitute trading venues with greater capability; the aspirations nurtured by buy-side firms to attain higher anonymity by decreasing the trading costs, the increased activism of institutional investors. Facing pressures from private label securities, players also find themselves fiercely competing on price.

The report titled “Securities: A Global Outlook” provides a collection of statistical anecdotes, market briefs, and concise summaries of research findings. The report provides a bird’s eye view of the industry, and a rudimentary review of select securities industry services. The report also briefly recapitulates recent mergers, acquisitions, and corporate developments. The US market is quantitatively discussed with 21 information rich tables giving the reader a strong macro level understanding of the market. Stock Market Performance, Outstanding Bond Market Debt by category, Corporate Debt Outstanding by Financial Sector, and Asset Backed Securities Outstanding by Credit Type, represent few of the parameters analyzed. Also included is an indexed, easy-to-refer, fact-finder directory listing the addresses, and contact details of 450 companies worldwide.

Bluestone America Will Provide Longevity Asset Backed Global Bond Offering

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 18, 2010

Bluestone America has launched, on August 9, 2009, its new global bond offering intended for the EU, Asian and American markets. These bonds are innovative because they allow for a variety of ways to fund and securitize asset based long-term development projects. These unique methods reduce the risks for traditional capital lenders, allowing for lower interest rates, longer terms, and a higher probability of project success due to these relaxed requirements. The bond is also structured in such a way that the coupon payment, and ultimate redemption, is independent of the funded project. These proprietary techniques used, were developed and are owned by Bluestone America, Inc.

The Longevity Asset, which is the ultimate debt-servicing component, is not affected or associated with any indexes or economic condition. It is modeled from absolute actuarial statistical data and uses an EU, Asian or American guarantor. The strength of this new asset backing comes from the origin of its known maturity. Over the last 150 years, the maturity data have been studied and became an experienced data tool. Also note that the asset has no speculative or derivative factors involved with its IRR or ultimate value at maturity.

This Global Debt instrument is best offered as a 144A SEC registered corporate debt offering for the EU, Asian and American markets. The Longevity Asset, being guaranteed by an EU, Asian or American guarantor, completely satisfies the bond debt service and redemption; therefore the long term outcome of projects and businesses being funded through the offering will not impact the success of the bond sales and financial performance.

As a provider of bond offerings that utilize non-correlated Longevity Assets, Bluestone offers services to provide and create the investment grade bond offering. The addition of the Longevity Asset, satisfies the required performance properties of the bond Pro Forma needed for underwriting by the rating agencies and the guarantor. Bluestone facilitates securities, legal, accounting, asset management, auditing, indenture & trustee service and marketing utilizing established working alliances with global service providers.

William Soady, President of Blustone America, was quoted as saying, This is a very specialized market in its infant stages that is offering a huge opportunity for those leaders who embrace the concept.

St. Louis Feds Bullard Addresses Containing Risk in the New Global Financial Landscape

New York, NY (Vocus) April 16, 2010

In remarks today to the 19th Annual Hyman P. Minsky Conference, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard assessed the state of the regulatory reform debate. In his presentation, Containing Risk in the New Global Financial Landscape, Bullard said, As the nations lender of last resort, the Fed will be at the center of managing any future financial crisis and this argues for the Fed playing the lead role in the new regulatory structure. A future Fed with an appropriately broad regulatory authority provides the U.S. with the best chance of avoiding a future crisis.

He also described how current regulatory reform proposals are not adequately addressing several key issues that could contribute to future financial crises. Only a few of the current financial reform proposals are likely to help prevent future crises, most are not, said Bullard. These issues include the susceptibility of non-bank financial firms to run-like phenomena; the existence of large financial firms worldwide that are too big to fail; the question of how any form of regulation could prevent an entire industry from adopting the same strategies, and addressing government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs).

Beyond Banking, Considering the Entire Financial Landscape

Bullard emphasized the critical need to consider the entire financial landscape rather than just the banking sector. The crisis encompassed a far larger segment than just commercial banking, Bullard said. Many non-bank financial firms, outside the banking sector, were at the heart of the crisis. These firms were not regulated by the Fed.

He added, As the crisis started in the fall of 2007, 20 firms accounted for about 80 percent of financial sector assets in the U.S. He noted that about one-third of this total was comprised of bank holding companies, with two-thirds comprised of non-bank financial entities such as the GSEs (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac), investment banks, insurance companies, and thrifts.

The non-bank financials are a whos-who of the most nettlesome entities during the crisis, he added. All of these firms faced severe stress during the crisis, regardless of the type of firm or the nature of regulation, he said. This is generally true globally as well. All were taken in by the allure of securitized products in various ways.

Bullard questioned whether current regulatory reform proposals would help prevent a similar scenario from happening again. How can we prevent an entire industry from adopting the same strategy? he asked. I do not see this being addressed in current proposals.

The View from the Fed

Bullard explained that the U.S. has a primary regulator system for the nations more than 8,000 commercial banks and thrifts. The primary regulator has the key authority for the regulation of the bank, he said. Before the crisis (as of January 2007), the Fed had primary regulatory responsibility for about 12 percent of the banks, or about 14 percent by assets.

The remaining 85 percent of banks and assets had non-Fed primary regulators, he noted. Then, as the crisis unfolded, all eyes turned to the Fed as the lender of last resort. Due to its narrow regulatory authority, the Feds view of the financial landscape was limited coming into the crisis. This made it harder to perform its lender-of-last-resort role, Bullard said, And, this led to a lot of ad hoc decision-making.

A Wall Street-Only Fed?

Bullard called for a strengthened central bank and cautioned against some current regulatory reform proposals that seek to create a Wall Street-only Fed. The Fed should remain involved with community bank regulation so that it has a view of the entire financial landscape, he said. It is important that the Fed does not become biased toward the very large, mostly New York-based institutions.

Bullard explained that one critical role of regulation is to provide a level, competitive playing field for institutions of all sizes. Community banks tend to fund smaller businesses, an important source of job growth for the economy. Understanding this process helps the Fed make sound monetary policy decisions.

He added, Regulation works well for the thousands of community banks in the U.S. The system features deposit insurance plus prudential regulation. The system allows failurecapitalism at workbut prevents bank runs and the associated panic. Community banks did not cause the crisis and do not need to be re-regulated.

The central bank must be well-informed about the entire financial landscape in order to head off a future crisis. The reform response should be to provide the Fed with an appropriately broad regulatory authority, Bullard concluded.

Global Electronic Access Control Systems Market to Reach US$6.0 Billion by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) January 11, 2011

Despite the popular perception that ever-present safety & security needs and rising crime rates, which interestingly tend to escalate during periods of economic downturn, make electronic access control systems market recession proof, the market ironically has shown signs of marked weakening in the midst of steady deterioration in business climate. With most key end-use sectors i.e. banking, financial services, retail (malls, multiplexes), IT sector, construction, and hospitality (hotels & restaurants) collapsing like a pack of cards, growth patterns have been largely distorted. The forced delay in launch of new retail projects such as malls, chain retailers and franchise outlets, as a result of distortions in economic variables, such as, drying up of debt markets, lack of capital investments, and deep corporate budgets cuts, have eroded market opportunities for EACS.

The meltdown of the construction industry, as reflected in the general weakness in new office, commercial and residential building projects, rising vacancy rates, construction delays and sharp falls in the number of applications for new building permits, and government scaling back of infrastructure-related projects have also played instrumental roles in negatively impacting new equipment order influx rates for EACS. For instance, although a very valuable addition to security infrastructure, the importance of electronic access control systems has temporarily been overshadowed as building owners focus squarely on surviving the crisis. In addition, widespread postponements, cancellation of upgradation security projects and delays in scheduled system replacements in existing facilities, have resulted in sharp declines in replacement demand.

However, a transient disruption in the economic climate like the recent recession is not likely to leave an indelible mark on the market, as prevention of authorized access and detection of perpetrators will always remain vital in the overall security arrangements. Although the tough economic climate has squeezed new orders for EACS, the focus on safety and security among organizations, government agencies and general public continues to remain unchanged, as security coverage is closely tied to safety of human life and asset protection in infrastructure facilities and residential and commercial centers.

With recession now at its tail end, the market will witness a quick resurgence of demand fundamentals, such as increase in commercial and residential building construction, improvements in disposable spends, and increase in infrastructure investments, which will help drive the EACS market in the post recession period. Growth in the market, which was hitherto frustrated by capital shortages, reduced personnel, and unemployment, is forecast to rebound as liquidity issues and financial hardships begin to ease. Technology developments such as development of more advanced, and higher value access control systems and efforts to integrate new advanced features and capabilities such as hybrid and wireless installations to the already installed access control systems, will also generate substantial demand for EACS market over the next few years.

As stated by the new market research report, US continue to remain the largest regional market. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing regional market waxing at a CAGR of about 3.7% over the analysis period. Growth in this market will be essentially driven by factors such as fast paced economic development in emerging countries such as China and India, increase in foreign investments, rise in the number of new business establishments and increase in crime rates. By product, Card-Based Electronic Access control systems market continues to be the largest product segment, holding a lions share of the global market. Smart cards represent the largest revenue contributor to the card-based EACS market. Audio and Video-Based Electronic Access Control Systems market is the fastest growing product segment, waxing at a CAGR of about 6.8% over the analysis period

Major players in the marketplace include Aiphone Co. Ltd., ASSA ABLOY AB, BIO-key, International Inc., DigitalPersona Inc, Gunnebo Ab, Hirsch Electronics Corporation, Honeywell Access Systems, Ingersoll Rand Recognition Systems Inc., Linear LLC, Imprivata

Global Debt Registry Response to Arizona Senate Passing Legislation Requiring Full Chain of Title Documentation on Mortgages

Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) March 14, 2011

On February 22nd the Arizona State Senate passed SB 1249 requiring lenders that did not originate a loan to produce the full chain of title for all prior beneficiaries or risk the foreclosure sale being voided and award of attorney fees and damages. The bill passed the Republican-dominated Senate by an overwhelming margin of 28-2. The bill is now in the House where it is expected to pass despite opposition from the states banking industry. The legislation, if passed into law, would become the first in the country requiring lenders to prove they have the right to foreclose by providing a complete list of any previous owners of the mortgage, or chain-of-title documentation on the debt.

In 2006, Global Debt Registry (GDR) recognized the serious weaknesses in consumer data management practices, and began development on a new technology platform that would ensure the integrity of managed and traded data, track account-level chain of title, and provide a turnkey portfolio and document-management repository. Today, the Company offers a fully developed and proven solution that addresses many of the issues facing the mortgage finance and servicing industry today.

“It is crucial for lenders, legislators, and consumers to understand that a solution to the issues that created this crisis already exists,” said Mark Parsells Executive Chairman of GDR. “Our system provides a single source for management of all data and documentation for Issuers, servicing entities, debt buyers, sellers, legal collection firms, regulators, judges, industry participants, and consumers.

Global Debt Registry Responds to 60-Minutes Segment on the Failure of Documentation in Mortgage Backed Securities — A Solution Exists

Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) April 11, 2011

Global Debt Registry (GDR) has a solution to fix the documentation issues raised in the broadcast of 60 Minutes on CBS, Sunday, April 3, 2011. GDRs patent pending solution is designed to facilitate both legally rebuilding existing faulty mortgage titles that have been securitized and to properly record all such assignments for past and future transactions. Our solution will give peace of mind to investors, regulators, consumers, and bank participants. Once broadly implemented, GDRs solution will:

1) inject integrity and transparency into the management and validation process for the recording and multiple assignments of mortgages that occur(red) during the origination and securitization process;

2) flood county governments with recording and assignment fees by managing required filings of all past and present MERS assignments as well as new filings at a time when every county needs new sources of revenue;

3) will solve the banking industrys problem surrounding proof of ownership on securitized mortgage documents; and

4) be the catalyst to revive the private sector global securitization market providing desperately needed liquidity to the economy.

Global Debt Registry is uniquely positioned to solve the problem surrounding the inability to identify the owners of mortgages that have been or will be securitized in the future, said Mark Parsells, Executive Chairman of GDR and former senior banking executive at Citigroup, Bank One and American Express. The industry wants to do the right thing to protect consumers as well as the assets entrusted to them by shareholders of their respective companies they just havent had a solution that will accomplish both of those goals until now.

GDRs solution is clean and simple. The Company provides a central repository in which all mortgage originators can register mortgages that are marked to be securitized. Then, as the mortgage begins its journey through the securitization process, GDR will ensure that each transfer is properly recorded and assigned in the appropriate counties. Each county will be paid the fees that are required by the purchaser. GDR will house the electronic records of each transfer in our highly scalable and secure database. This will ensure that each and every mortgage that is securitized will be transferred properly with the appropriate assignee and showing that each time the mortgage traded hands that it is in the appropriate county records and that all required government service fees have been paid.

In 2006, Global Debt Registry (GDR) began development of a new enterprise platform built to track ownership, ensure traded data validity, and centralize document management for account and portfolio level transactions on consumer debt. Since then, GDR introduced its new platform to the consumer receivables industry and now supports more than sixty debt buying and servicing companies in all fifty states. GDR offers a new standard for tracking debt ownership with superior data recording and documentation management capabilities compared to existing systems.

In January of 2011, the company received a provisional patent from the US Patent and Trademark Office on technologies in its most recent platform Release GDR 5.1. GDR is on VISAs Customer Information Security Program List of Compliant Service Providers. Visas Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards are the banking industrys highest standards for protecting confidential consumer Personally Identifiable information (PII).

Weve delivered a revolutionary data- and document-management platform with unmatched security and scalabilityeffectively redefining the standards for tracking and managing securitization transactions in the global financial services industry, said Greg Ousley, CEO of Global Debt Registry. Our patent-pending technology delivers integrity to the issuing/originating, servicing, and selling of debt/securities, including tracking mortgage ownership, servicing rights, and related key data and documentation.

The most widely used system for tracking assignments/ownership and servicing rights of mortgages was introduced in 1996 requiring users to participate in little more than an electronic handshake with minimal oversight. The huge growth in demand for mortgage-backed securities created time pressures that led to weak and faulty documentation highlighted in the 60-Minutes piece. GDR recognizes that weakness and designed a system with numerous real-time quality assurance points to ensure transactional integrity, transparency, and protections for all parties. While millions of legacy mortgages and their supporting documentation are destined for the courts in the months and years ahead, 100 percent of GDRs registered mortgages will be managed under the financial industrys most stringent data security requirements in a process proven to meet the federal rules of evidence, including strict adherence to the Pooling and Service Agreement requirements and verification of legally required filings with county recorders.

GDR offers its services to all those seeking a proven, carefully measured solution to the issues facing the securitization industry today. For more information about Global Debt Registry please visit or contact Denis Concannon, Public Relations at 781.413.0002,
