Thursday, 2nd May 2024: Molo Tech Limited (Molo) and ColCap Financial UK Limited (ColCap UK) have successfully completed their first securitisation, ‘Molossus BTL 2024-1’.

The securitisation totals £300 million of prime UK buy-to-let mortgage loans in England and Wales. It is a Residential Mortgage-Backed Security (RMBS) transaction.

ColCap is a leading privately-owned, Australian non-bank lender specialising in residential mortgage loans. Founded in 2006, it has a loan portfolio in excess of AUS $14.0 billion. ColCap invested in Molo, an award-winning digital buy-to-let lender, in February 2023 via its UK subsidiary, ColCap UK.

The diversified pool of underlying mortgage assets has generated significant interest and strong investor demand.

The securitisation received a AAA(sf) rating from global credit rating agencies Fitch and S&P Global Ratings respectively. The ratings were for 87.5% of the pool and the senior tranche was priced at 0.95% over SONIA.

Macquarie Bank and Standard Chartered Bank acted as Joint Arrangers and Macquarie Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, and Citigroup acted as Joint Lead Managers.

Speaking about the securitisation Molo’s CEO Matt Kimber, says, The success of this RMBS highlights the strength of Molo’s mortgage lending capabilities and the credit quality of our originations. It enables us to continue empowering landlords with accessible and innovative lending solutions while reinforcing our position as a leader in the buy-to-let mortgage market.”
