CRT investors and reinsurers gain new valuation insights
PEEKSKILL, NY, February 23, 2023: CRT Hub, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chasen Enterprises and specialty provider of data, tools and analytics for the structured finance industry, is pleased to announce it has entered into an alliance with Andrew Davidson & Co., Inc. (“AD&Co”), a provider of risk analytics and consulting for residential mortgage loans and mortgage-backed securities. Through this new arrangement, CRT Hub will integrate AD&Co’s LoanDynamics Model into its platform giving Credit Risk Transfer (“CRT”) investors and reinsurers the ability to leverage AD&Co’s mortgage credit model and forecast prepayment, delinquency, default, and loss severity on Agency CRT Securities, Reinsurance and Mortgage Insurance Linked Notes.
“With a focus on transparency and inter-operability, CRT Hub is well positioned to become the market leader in CRT risk management analytics,” said Andy Chasen, Founder and President of CRT Hub. “Our strategy over the long term includes expansion into additional structured products, as we strive to provide greater products and services for the marketplace. The alliance with an industry leader like AD&Co is part of this client-focused game plan to deliver superior insights.”
CRT Hub provides users with the ability to analyze and generate cashflows from a comprehensive library of credit risk transfer securities and reinsurance transactions issued by Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, and various mortgage insurers. The deal models incorporate key transaction components including information on the underlying reference pool, the liability structure, and such waterfall components as key dates, trigger tests and call provisions.
“Our industry leading LoanDynamics Model (www.ad-co.com/loandynamics) is a perfect addition to the CRT Hub,” said Michelle Stepien, Vendor Relations Manager at AD&Co. “With deep knowledge of mortgage insurers, especially the GSEs, and a commitment to continuously updating our model to ensure maximum valuation outputs, CRT Hub users should benefit from our insights.”
