Collateralized Loan Obligation

An asset-backed security backed by the receivables on loans. Banks package and sell their receivables on loans to investors in order to reduce the risk coming from loan defaults. Returns on CLOs are paid in tranches; that is, the individual loans backing a CLO have different maturities, and investors are paid out as each matures. Banks offer higher interest rates to investors willing to buy CLOs backed by higher-risk loans. From a bank's perspective, in addition to reducing risk, CLOs also reduce their capital requirements by raising funds through the issue of CLOs. See also: Collateralized mortgage obligation.
