U.S. CLO Tranche Recovery Metric (TRM)
Based on our framework for estimating recoveries on collateralized loan obligation (CLO) tranches, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services provides these values for the relevant transactions in our U.S. Corporate CDO EOD Index. Our CLO Tranche Recovery Metric (CLO TRM), which we express as a percent of the current balance of the security, reflects a cash-flow-based recovery analysis for individual CLO tranches, given a set of hypothetical economic scenarios and certain collateral default and recovery assumptions.
A CLO TRM is not a rating. Rather, we designed this metric to offer supplementary analytics to market participants who seek additional analytic capabilities and greater transparency in the CLO Sector.
