Structured financing uses a special purpose entity (SPE) or special purpose vehicle (SPV) to strip off specific assets for future cash flows to obtain financing based on the SPE or SPV. This financing method can also be understood as the way of swapping specific assets with cash assets in the balance sheet (known as an‘assets swap’) to increase the amount of productive assets, mostly liquid assets at a fixed liability-asset ratio.
