RiskValDynamics is our flexible valuation engine. It can evaluate mortgage backed-securities, combining LoanDynamics, our suite of MacroDynamics models, and our original and highly efficient cash-flow engines.
MacroDynamics includes the following models:
HomePriceDynamics utilizes various models to forecast home prices. Simulating home prices consistent with Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) historical data, it produces Monte Carlo analyses of projected housing prices forecasted to Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) levels. It employs one model using a “geographical localizer” to look at housing price index (HPI) forecasts simulated to MSA levels and uses a second, stochastic home price appreciation (HPA) model, to determine how default options and capital structures should be valued.
InterestRateDynamics combines four models: a choice of three single-factor models or a two-factor model. All models are free of arbitrage with each model instantly calibrated to swaps (a LIBOR swap or Treasury curve) and a matrix of at-the-money swaptions. Each model can be run time-dependent or at constant volatility that is completely controlled by the model.
UnemploymentDynamics will be our latest macro-economic model focused on unemployment statistics and trends. We anticipate launching this model by year-end 2020.
