The Bank of Cyprus Group completed the securitization of a mortgage loan portfolio in Greece.

This is the first securitization of a bank incorporated outside Greece using Greek assets, and the objective is to enhance further the group’s liquidity ratios.

The RMBS, which totaled to € 1 billion ($1.39 billion), have been issued by Katoikia I Mortgage Finance Plc, a special purpose entity registered in the U.K., and have been listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.

The class A notes, rated 'Aaa' by Moody’s Investors Service, amounted to €886.6 million. The class B notes, which were unrated, totaled to €113.4 million.

The securitization has been arranged by Barclays Capital.
