The Handbook of Mortgage-Backed Securities

This concluding chapter provides a practical framework for assessing relative value in agency mortgage-based securities (MBS) products given their uniqueness among asset classes in the fixed income world. Relative value analysis is a prevailing but very suitable approach for determining whether the risk/reward proposition of an individual agency MBS related security looks rich, cheap, or at a fair value versus other agency MBS securities, as well as in comparison to typical benchmarks. For agency MBS investments, neither a single risk/reward variable nor a single rate scenario is necessarily enough to assess relative value. It is the analysis of a combination of numerous risk/reward metrics across multiple rate and speed scenarios that provide a robust range of relative value triangulation points.

Keywords:   relative value analysis, agency mortgage-based securities, asset classes, fixed income world, risk/reward proposition, agency MBS investments
