CT Expert Insights: The Importance of a Special Purpose Entity / Vehicle for Your Structured Finance Deal

A special purpose entity (SPE) or vehicle (SPV) is a unique entity or means of holding on to an asset in a place separate from the rest of your business. While they are common in real estate, many businesses find them advantageous to use in any kind of large lending situation. Ian Bone, Senior Manager of Strategy and Innovation at CT Corporation, discusses what SPVs and SPEs are, when to use them, and the benefits and risks associated with them. 


What is a special purpose entity?

A special purpose entity or SPE, sometimes called a 'special purpose vehicle' or SPV, is a legal entity created to fill a very specific or temporary business objective. They can be LPs, LLCs, subsidiaries, or trusts. Their operations are limited to the acquisition and financing of specific assets.

Why is it important to create a special purpose entity in order to complete a deal?

Special purpose entities can help to protect your firm from financial risk. You can transfer assets to a special purpose entity for a deal or use the entity to finance a large project. Conversely, the obligations of a special purpose entity are secure even if the parent company declares bankruptcy.
