In a universe of more than 20,000 ABS/MBS deals, the process of selecting a potentially interesting deal is like looking for a needle in a haystack. R&R has developed a very powerful Ranking Engine to track and rank securities of interest that match a particular risk and value profile.
Using a unique and innovative scoring algorithm, up to 26 parameters may be entered to compute the final score for each deal. Search parameters come from a wide variety of sources, from raw pool or tranche data to advanced computations from the R&R world, like remaining expected loss, expected impairment time and expected liquidity event.
