Filter Offers Efficiently
Query Edge’s rich private-label RMBS database (loan-level performance since before the Financial Crisis) to rank cohorts so you have a cheat sheet when deals arrive.
For example, run 100 shelves and rank credit losses and prepay speeds
When you see a top-ranking shelf or loan type, use Edge to value the deal precisely; when you see a low-ranking cohort, don’t spend time
