Description

The Analysis of Structured Securities presents the first intellectually defensible framework for systematic assessment of the credit quality of structured securities. It begins with a detailed description and critique of methods used to rate asset-backed securities, collateralized debt obligations and asset-backed commercial paper. The book then proposes a single replacement paradigm capable of granular, dynamic results. It offers extensive guidance on using numerical methods in cash flow modeling, as well as a groundbreaking section on trigger optimization. Casework on applying the method to automobile ABS, CDOs-of-ABS and aircraft-lease securitizations is also presented. This book is essential reading for practitioners who seek higher precision, efficiency and control in managing their structured exposures.show more

Review quote

"Much has been written about structured finance and rating, but nothing compares to this truly unique book by Raynes and Rutledge. To my surprise, I could not put it down, as each chapter beckoned of more to come. The authors lay out solutions to the practical problem of rating debt securities in the structured finance context. This book is a "must read" for anyone involved in structured finance. In light of the recent market failure, securities rating is indeed of interest to many investors. In fact, this book offers fascinating reading to anyone interested in the ways we seek to predict the future." -Tamar Frankel, Professor of Law, Boston University Law School "This is an extremely informative book. Each page is rich with institutional detail and analytical insights. The reader who masters this book will be well prepared to address the important issues in today's structured securities markets." -Perry D. Quick, Vice President, Charles River Associates "The Analysis of Structured Securitries is a much needed text book covering an important and growing segment of capital markets. The authors combine rich institutional knowledge with illustrative examples that make the topic especially accessible. For the more technically inclined there are chapters that address the modeling issues in greater detail. I recommend this text to serious students in fixed income markets." -Suresh M. Sundaresan, Chase Manhattan Bank Professor of Finance and Economics, Columbia University New Yorkshow more
