Last Friday, members of the American Securitization Forum sat before Congress to present the "Securitization Institute," a newly developed educational outreach program that the industry group will use as one of its lobbying tools.

Tom Dunn, executive vice president at MBNA Corp., gave the issuer's perspective in securitization, while Stephen Geis, a managing partner at i3 Capital Partners, provided the investor's perspective. Thacher Profitt & Wood's Richard Simonds and Morgan Stanley's Doug Van Ness were also part of the presentation.
