Covered bonds are debt instruments issued by a bank or mortgage institution and collateralised against a pool of assets that, in case of failure of the issuer, can cover claims at any point of time. They are subject to specific legislation to protect the owners of the bond.
Covered Bonds are different from asset-backed securities in that the covered bond continues as an obligation of the issuer; giving the investor dual recourse against the issuer and the collateral.
