The brokerage is setting up Bear Stearns Residential Mortgage Corporation to underwrite the loans. The new company will initially focus on underwriting non-conforming loans, including loans with large balances, alt-A loans that require less documentation, and sub-prime lending. The New York-based investment bank will pool together the mortgages it underwrites and sell them as securities to institutional investors. The average loan size will be in the $225,000-$250,000 range and as large as $3 million. Bear Stearns will lend via mortgage brokers. Among prime loans, Bear Stearns will offer $10,000-$25,000 home equity loans for now. While the bank has underwritten mortgages in the past under a private label, most of the loans it has pulled together into mortgage-backed securities were purchased in blocks of $100 million to several billion dollars in size. Based in New York, Bear Stearns Companies is a global securities firm. For more information, call (888) 473-3819 or visit www.bearstearns.com.
