Collateralized Loan Obligations (CLOs) – More Math, More Models, More Mayhem?

John Kerschner, head of U.S. securitized products at Janus Henderson, points out that collateralized loan obligations (CLOs) differ in dramatic ways from collateralized debt obligations (CDOs), which many blame for igniting the Great Recession of 2007-09 – despite having related structures and a certain reliance on quantitative risk models.
