Banco Santander Central Hispano (BSCH) is looking to securitize part of its loan portfolio in Chile before the end of the first half of the year. The decision, which could prompt other financial institutions in the country to tap the ABS market, is an attempt by the bank to comply with Chilean regulations.

BSCH controls Banco Santiago and Banco Santander, the country's two biggest private-sector financial institutions, which together represent more than 28% of the local loan market.
