Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility: non-CMBS

The Federal Reserve created the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF), to help market participants meet the credit needs of households and small businesses by supporting the issuance of asset-backed securities (ABS) collateralized by auto loans, student loans, credit card loans, equipment loans, floorplan loans, insurance premium finance loans, loans guaranteed by the Small Business Administration, residential mortgage servicing advances, or commercial mortgage loans. Eligible borrowers must use a TALF Agent, which will act as agent for the borrower, to access the TALF and must deliver eligible collateral to the New York Fed's custodian bank.

The following operations announcement pertains to non-mortgage-backed ABS:
