San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
Larry Chiavaro, SVP of First Associates Loan Servicing, will speak at the Solar Power Finance and Investment Summit in San Diego, California on Monday, March 18th. Chiavaro will discuss the perspectives of rating agencies on solar securitization.
Chiavaro has strong historical ties to the rating agencies built over years of experience in the consumer finance industry. At First Associates, Chiavaro has built a rapidly growing backup servicing business to enable greater rating agency confidence in consumer debt transactions. He was instrumental in developing and executing First Associates new Integrated Solar Backup servicing, the first back up service to integrate both financial and O&M backup.
“Solar securitization is a key component of growth in the residential market,” said Larry Chiavaro. “The ability to attract a broader investor base for long term debt will be the catalyst for rapid consumer solar adoption. There have been many other lessors of operating assets that have tapped into the securitization market in the past. Solar is a new asset class to the market but it has many precedents to draw from. The industry is working together to create the common processes, rules and documents that will enable the creation of a strong solar securitization market and First Associates is pleased to be part of that effort.”
“The Solar Power Finance & Investment Summit is recognized as the leading gathering place for the industry’s deal makers,” said Gretchen Luchsinger, President of Infocast. “We’re pleased to have Mr. Chiavaro join us this year. He is very well connected in the industry and is always a great source of information and insight.”
