    Agency MBS Prepayment Model Using Neural Networks

    Mortgage-backed securities make up a huge portion of the U.S. financial system. Mortgage prepayment modeling is essential in MBS investment and risk analysis. It is also among the most complex areas of financial modeling, because of the vast data volume and large number of risk factors.

    A consumer sentiment factor from web content

    The explosion in alternative data has been a blessing and a curse to investment managers. We have identified one source that provided unique and uncorrelated information when added to analysis of traditional factors and other measures of sentiment.

    MSCI Current Coupon Models

    This paper describes the MSCI Current Coupon Model. The future cashflow of mortgage-backed securities (MBS) is uncertain due to the embedded prepayment option. The prepayment decisions of borrowers are largely driven by the prevailing mortgage rates in the future. Mortgage rates are derived from current coupon rates.
