It receives any remaining interest that is received from the collateral but not paid to the senior and mezzanine tranches. Problem: The majority of investors are paid a floating rate, whereas the underlying pool bonds pay a fixed rate.
If rates rise, the collateral manager can get burned. This is because the manager could find itself having to pay out an increasingly higher rate to tranche holders while its source of funds - interest on the underlying bonds - is fixed.
Solution: The manager must protect against rising rates. Entering a swap as the fixed payer variable receiver solves the problem, as this position provides positive cash flow when interest rates rise.
The collateral consists of bonds that all mature in five years. The coupon rate of these bonds is the five-year T-bond rate plus basis points. Assume that there is no default or asset management fee. All payments are made annually each year for simplicity. Cash CDOs Cash CDOs involve a portfolio of cash assets, such as loans, corporate bonds, asset-backed securities or mortgage-backed securities.
The risk of loss on the assets is divided among tranches in reverse order of seniority. Motivation - Arbitrage vs. Balance Sheet Arbitrage transactions attempt to capture for equity investors the spread between the relatively high yielding assets and the lower yielding liabilities represented by the rated bonds. The majority of CDOs are arbitrage-motivated. Balance sheet transactions, by contrast, are primarily motivated by the issuing institutions' desire to remove loans and other assets from their balance sheets, to reduce their regulatory capital requirements and improve their return on risk capital.

The structured finance market experienced phenomenal growth and innovation during the past decade.
