From the desk of Joel Banes  November 2018

From 2008 to 2016, interest rates were consistently low, while SBA prepayment speeds were relatively stable. In that environment, it was expedient to use a “standard” prepayment speed and ignore the use of a “vectored” prepayment speed when projecting potential yield for an SBA Pool. That said, we have always advocated for the benefit of utilizing vectored payment speeds to evaluate SBA Pools. 

In October 2017, the SBA changed the way it passes through the embedded principal which exists in seasoned pools to the SBA registered holders. The following will demonstrate why we believe the use of vectored prepayment speeds is even more advisable following this change. To appreciate the difference between SBA prepayment speeds and vectored prepayment speeds, consider the data. See More

Those are my thoughts. Always happy to discuss.   JOEL BANES (901) 261-5950
