Structured finance is a sector of finance that manages leverage and risk. The name ‘structured’ derives from financial transactions that are made up of collateral-backed securities.

Principally provided to major financial institutions or companies it invariably involves complex financing on a scale much higher than can be met by an ordinary loan or bond.
