Democrats are right to keep pushing for more information and data about leveraged loans and collaterialized loan obligations(CLOs). Tuesday’s hearing was a very good start to what is likely to be a lengthy fact finding mission. Leveraged loan and CLO markets are very opaque. In order to figure out how much banks are holding in these two financial products, you have to look at each bank’s financial statements or regulatory call reports. And to figure out the risk weighting of their securitizations, such as CLOs, you have to analyze banks’ Basel III Pillar III disclosures.
