Summary of panel:

CLOs robust in last recession

Not structured for bull markets only

Cheap liability (if locked in) and good trading should benefit the sub tranche

Loan quality comparable to earlier vintages currently

Cov-lite proliferation may see defaults happening later

Potential increase in dispersion of losses

Don't think loan losses to be as abrupt in next downturn

Path of CLO manager performance

Widening in CLO asset and liability spreads allowing deals to work
