In this issue of the Resource Center, we bring you a very interesting overview of the market for private RMBS securities before the financial crisis. In October 2005, Credit Suisse First Boston published a report for prospective investors in private RMBS. The report provides a comprehensive overview of the features and characteristics of private RMBS that CSFB believed investors needed to know to evaluate the likely performance of the securities. The report focuses on prime jumbo RMBS but also compares those RMBS to agency (i.e., GSE and Ginnie Mae) and Alt-A/subprime RMBS securities. Looking for a useful introduction to private RMBS?
