Typically relates to securitisation. A corporate or bank which wants to securitise it’s assets sets up a special purpose vehicle that does nothing more than buy those assets and use them as collateral to sell securities. The corporate or bank thus manages to get the assets off it’s balance sheet and may still receive fees for managing the assets.
