Definition for : Eligibility criteria
An asset is "Eligible" to be included as a Collateral in the context of a secured loan or Bond, when it does meet the "eligibility criteria" defined by the Arranger, and as the case may be, by the Rating agency(-ies). This is particularly important in Factoring and Trade receivables securitisations. The opposite is "Ineligible".
