What is Special Purpose Vehicle(SPV)?

SPVs are corporate vehicles, typically private companies, established for the purpose of isolating financial and legal risk by ring-fencing assets and liabilities. SPVs can be established as subsidiaries, project or joint venture vehicles to ensure that only those assets related to a transaction are exposed to the liabilities associated with that transaction. As the key feature of an SPV is its separate legal personality, claims by the SPV’s creditors cannot attach to the assets of the SPV’s shareholders or any of its sister companies.
