Fixed Income Securities Expert in Subprime Mortgages
A fixed income securities expert in subprime mortgages was needed for a class action suit. The plaintiffs were individuals who obtained subprime second mortgage loans from a mortgage company. When the mortgage company filed for bankruptcy, plaintiffs sought damages from the defendant, a securitization company that purchased the subprime second mortgage loans from the mortgage company, securitized them, and sold them to investors as fixed income securities. Plaintiffs claim they were charged improper and excessive fees on the subprime second mortgage loans, in violation of state law.
IMS ExpertServices was asked to find fixed income securities experts who were familiar with the processes for the securitization of subprime loans. The selected expert had to opine on the level of due diligence a securitization company is responsible for regarding whether a lender may have violated state laws during the lending process.
