Slaughter and May advised Deutsche Bank AG - sale of UK residential mortgage loans
Slaughter and May advised Deutsche Bank AG on the sale of a £396mm portfolio of UK residential mortgage loans by DB UK Bank Limited, a UK-based subsidiary of Deutsche Bank AG, to Rochester Mortgages Limited (RML), a subsidiary of OneSavings Bank plc (OSB), and its subsequent securitisation by Rochester Financing No.2 plc (Rochester 2).
In connection with the securitisation, RML sold approximately £374mm of the mortgage loan portfolio to Rochester 2, the securitisation issuer, while OSB acquired and will keep approximately £22mm of the portfolio on balance sheet to comply with the EU risk retention requirements. OSB and Morgan Stanley acted as co-arrangers of the securitisation.
Slaughter and May also advised Deutsche Bank AG on the purchase of notes and residual certificates in the securitisation.
