About this course

This course begins with an introduction to Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) where we’ll look into the reasons for the rapid growth of the MBS market and the size of the MBS market.

You will learn to identify the U.S. mortgage agencies and distinguish among them regarding their legal status, nature of the guarantees they offer and types of mortgages they securitize. You'll also learn about the two major types of securities based on the securitization of mortgages and describe the type of structuring connected with each.

By the end of this course, you’ll also be able to describe the basic features of agency pass-through securities and collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs) and how their structural differences impact cash flows received by investors.

Learner testimonials

"NYIF is great option for those looking to learn more about specific finance related topics that you just won't get in undergrad or grad school. I took the course on Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) and I can tell you first hand, this is something they just don't teach about in great detail in college. Appreciated the chance to learn from someone with real world experience and alongside other colleagues working in the industry."
