As a result, Tango now has €5.2 billion in cash assets, down from €9.7 billion in July. The Tango portfolio has only minimal exposure to collateralised debt obligations of asset-backed securities (CDOs of ABSs) and US subprime mortgages, Rabobank said.

Rabobank believes there is no immediate prospect of the funding situation for SIVs improving in 2008.
