Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) are an integral part of many structured finance transactions, particularly asset securitizations.

SPVs can be created through a variety of entities, such as trusts, corporations, limited partnerships, and limited liability corporations.
In some cases, it may be desirable to remove assets and their corresponding liabilities from the balance sheet of the company, and a sale of the assets to an SPV will accomplish this.
