Investment Strategy

Turnkey Investment Process

Investing in mortgage loans should be as easy as investing in CUSIPs. Our loan diligence and settlement workflow, our enterprise level data management model, our powerful risk analytics, and our unique legal structure enable any investor without any loan investment infrastructure to access the market on the same terms as the biggest, most experienced investors. We will provide all the operational and investment solutions any investor requires.

Pre-Purchase Operational Rigor

We buy from only high-quality approved counterparties with strong loan manufacturing processes. We buy only well underwritten products. And we tightly manage the review of loan documents and loan collateral so that manufacturing defects and compliance risk are minimized.

Co-Operative Pricing Model

We have vetted and negotiated partnerships with best-in-class partners to provide loan servicing, life of loan data management, document custody and trust services at prices that even smaller loan portfolios will find economical. We have marshalled the collective buying power of all our clients to attain competitive fees for each individual client.

Portfolio "Best-Ex”

Investors will receive loan level yield and risk information each day on the new origination loan market. Based on each investor’s yield target and risk appetite, we will use analytics and data science to recommend a purchase strategy that maximizes yield and minimizes risk subject to constraints around credit risk, interest rate risk, concentration risk and tail risk. Dominium will then execute an investment strategy looking at current trends in loan origination and other market dynamics to acquire a portfolio that best meets the stated yield and risk objectives.

Insurance Friendly Structure

For insurance clients, investing in loans in separately managed accounts brings favorable risk-based capital treatment, favorable statutory accounting treatment and presents an opportunity to add low cost, efficient leverage from the Federal Home Loan banking system.

Loan Data Management

Powered by our partner, RiskSpan, all loan data and digitized documents will be held in a single data warehouse. Transaction and other performance activities related to each loan will be collected into the same data warehouse. The result, a life-of-loan data repository, is unique in the loan investment industry and will serve a similar function that bond custodians serve for CUSIP investors.

Robust Asset Management Platform

Risk, accounting, market, and performance data on each loan will be available to investors on a daily basis via custom risk reports. Statutory accounting schedules will also be provided to insurance investors.

We look forward to speaking with you.
