Collateral

Karson is a premier independent provider of effective, scalable and efficient financing platforms to support the collateral, capital and reserve financing needs of large financial institutions.

To date, Karson has completed 17 transactions that have provided a total of $8.3 billion in K-Notes (or cash) to meet the asset or collateral requirements of its insurance company clients. Each of these transactions benefitted from Karson’s multi-user platform, which is supported by an operating framework administered by The Bank of New York Mellon and provides flexible and extensive access to the wider capital markets for financing capacity. All transactions were approved by applicable regulators in several U.S. states and in Canada.

Building on its track record and unique platform capabilities, Karson is currently launching an updated and streamlined financing platform to support banks in their liquidity (LCR, NSFR), capital (risk transfer and capital financing) and resolution (contingent liquidity) management initiatives.

Taken as a whole, Karson’s platform capabilities combine insurance and financial market experience and expertise with standardized transaction structures, operating processes and documentation, to create effective, efficient and sustainable solutions for its clients, their regulators and investors.
