Comma number 2 of the law on securitisation defines the Servicer as “entity authorised for the collection of receivables, cash services and payments”¯; this entity is also responsible to verify whether an operation is compliant with the Law 130/99 and with the Prospectus.
The primary legislation does not establish nor pinpoint master servicer, primary servicer and special servicer roles. However, daily routine has allowed identifying a term base acquired during the operational procedure.
when the servicing activity is handled by only one individual; in this case, a sub-servicer is not appointed. The primary servicer has, therefore, the duty to carry out operative functions and to serve as guarantor and controller as determined by the supervisory regulations.
In particular, the primary servicer:
- it is directly involved in the activity of managing portfolio loans, since they have a direct contact with the assigned debtors.
- It directly monitors the portfolio of receivables and loans and all planned deadlines: straightforwardly produces reports for the issuer and the investors.
the Master servicer is in charge of monitoring and guaranteeing/controlling the correct operational functioning since this activity cannot be delegated. However, compared to the Primary Servicer, a third party individual – the sub-servicer – is responsible for the collection of receivables.
In particular, the primary servicer: monitors the activities of the sub-servicer, who is in charge of collecting the receivables (receivables and deadlines) and the administration of receivables, and also for verifying the quality of the supplied information: is responsible for drafting reports for the issuer and the investors (Computation agent).
a special servicer is a servicer or sub-servicer carries out special operational tasks as well, such as credit collection activities. Therefore, with this meaning in master servicer structures, a sub-servicer can be qualified as a special servicer as well.
It is also possible to identify the following roles as connected to the servicing activities.
