UBS Said to Be Raising $400 Million CLO for American Money

February 15, 2012

Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- UBS AG is raising a $400 million collateralized loan obligation to be managed by American Money Management Corp., according to three people with knowledge of the deal.

The CLO includes a $261 million slice rated AAA by Standard & Poor’s that has initial price guidance of 150 basis points more than the London interbank offered rate, said the people, who declined to be identified because the terms are private.

CLOs are a type of collateralized debt obligation that pool high-yield, high-risk loans and slice them into securities of varying risk and return. A basis point is 0.01 percentage point.
