“If you live in a house or rent an apartment then you’re involved in STDs.” Whether you own your own home, rental property, or invest in these securities, these STDs will affect you.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 21, 2010
FiduciaryFORENSICS® expert Chris McConnell, AIFA® has identified a new enormous risk area for all investors: STD™ (Securitization Transmitted Damages). McConnell has been calling for increased investment independent due diligence before investing for years.
STDs arise when mortgages are not properly assigned to trusts designed to hold certain legal documents--or from improper foreclosures. Potential losses are in the trillions of dollars. Investors believed negatively impacted include the Federal Reserve (ultimately the US taxpayer), NY Federal Reserve Bank, large institutional investors like pension and 401k plans, charities, nonprofits, foundations and hedge funds, mutual funds, exchange traded funds ETFs, and direct investors in any mortgage backed security (MBS) and/or Municipal Bond starting with money market mutual funds.
State, county and local city government budgets may face unprecedented pressure as house values directly impact property taxes. Property tax collections usually decline when a home goes into foreclosure AND when remaining homes in the neighborhood values’ decline, causing some homeowners to further seek relief, appeal property tax bills.
Today Bloomberg reports that the NY Fed and PIMCO have asked Bank of America to take back $47 Billion of mortgage backed securities.
Yesterday, Bloomberg TV aired an interview with a Texas cattle rancher who stated the indisputable, “If you eat then you’re involved in agriculture.” When it comes to STDs, Chris McConnell, AIFA® FiduciaryFORENSICS® expert says, “If you live in a house or apartment then you’re involved in STDs.”
Whether you own your own home, rental property, or invest in these securities, these STDs will affect you. The securities are known in the industry as RMBS (Residential Mortgage Backed Securities) or CMBS (Commercial Mortgage Backed Securities).
How did STDs come about?
The banks that originated mortgages prior to the so called financial crisis, later resold them to trusts which in turn sold them (the industry term is securitized them into MBS) to investors. But bond trust, investigations reveal, may not hold proper title to the underlying collateral. Defective title virally permeates the MBS food chain, hence STDs.
