Cullinan Finance was a Structured investment vehicle (SIV) run by HSBC with total asset portfolio around $27 billion USD.[1]

It was established in 2005. As of 2007 it was managed by a team led by Dominic Swan, who previously led the SIV-rating department at Moody's.

It was notable for growing faster than any other SIV so far and was as of 2007 one of the six largest SIVs.[citation needed]

On 26 November 2007, HSBC announced that it would rescue two SIV's, Cullinan Finance and Asscher, by moving them onto its balance sheet and providing up to $35 billion.[2]

As of 2008, Cullinan Finance Limited is in liquidation.[3]
