This group will explore investing in MBS/ABS. Attendees will gain an understanding of MBS structure and analytics. With the real estate market hitting new highs and cap rates falling we will explore the advantages of MBS investing vs. real estate. MBS offer one of the highest risk/return profiles available in the bond market but it is imperative that investors have an understanding of the risk involved and how to mitigate the risk. We will discuss the commission structure of traditional broker-dealers and how brokers actually have an incentive to push investors into the riskiest bonds.
