Overview

"This book fills a very important gap in the mindset of the bond structurer and the investor. Often, the two disciplines approach their tasks ignorant of the perspectives of the other side. But successful structuring requires providing the best value to investors in order to compete, and investors who don’t fully understand structuring will not remain investors for long. Highly recommended!"
–Bennett W. Golub Managing Director, BlackRock, Inc.

"An excellent primer on asset securitization, clearly written in plain English and with straightforward mathematical expressions. This book is suitable for both business school students and structured finance market practitioners."
–Joseph Hu, PhD Managing Director, Structured Finance Ratings Standard & Poor’s

"In their new work Securitization: Structuring and Investment Analysis, Andrew Davidson et al. reinforce their preeminence in the alchemy of mortgage securitization. Anyone involved in mortgages neglects Andy’s work at his peril."
–Richard T. Pratt Chairman, Richard T. Pratt Associates Former Chairman, Merrill Lynch Mortgage Corporation

"This book provides an insightful and accessible exploration of securitized real estate markets. As such, it provides a valuable service to those active and interested in these burgeoning markets. The authors have done a wonderful job of gracefully integrating a vast and important subject matter. Accordingly, this book also makes for an excellent textbook for those universities offering one or more courses in this rapidly growing field."
–Joseph L. Pagliari, Jr.
Kellogg School of Management Northwestern University

LAN-LING WOLFF heads Fredell & Co. Structured Finance Ltd. in London, which specializes in providing structuring and arranging services for asset-backed securities all over Europe. Wolff’s background in the U.S. mortgage-backed securities market and understanding of the European capital markets places her on the cutting edge of securitization globally.

ANNE CHING, a senior consultant at Andrew Davidson & Co., Inc., has worked in the credit risk and investment analysis of sub-prime residential and manufactured housing sectors. She has also worked on the structuring of non-U.S. mortgage-backed securities.

The authors drew on the expertise of Andrew Davidson & Co., Inc., in preparing Securitization. The broad range of expertise of the firm’s consultants, and the technical and analytical skills of the firm’s analysts, provide a rich background that gives Securitization strong theoretical underpinnings, as well as a grounding in practical application of the theory and methods described in the book. Two associates from outside the firm, with additional specialized expertise, were enlisted as well.
