Subscribe to our newsletter

Andrew Davidson & Company (AD&Co) has launched a new valuation service, the Credit Loss Snapshot, which provides the key credit loss metrics now required by FAS 124 and FAS 157 for credit sensitive residential mortgage backed securities. This report extends the valuation services currently provided by AD&Co for other than temporary impairment (OTTI) and Level III fair value pricing.

AD&Co’s Credit Loss Snapshot provides a solution to firms that need to estimate the present value of expected cash flows and credit loss on their MBS holdings. The Snapshot harnesses the power of the LoanDynamics Model, AD&Co’s credit model, to forecast losses under a base case home price scenario. This is a CUSIP based service that provides a series of analytical and descriptive deliverables at both the collateral and bond level.

Rick Ellson, director of AD&Co’s Valuation services, remarks: “The Credit Snapshot reflects the growing demand within the RMBS community for a cost effective outsourced solution that contains the important components of the required credit disclosures.”

AD&Co provides independent valuations of credit sensitive residential mortgage backed securities to the financial community.
