AOMT 2018-2 marks Angel Oak’s largest non-QM securitization to date. Its seven non-QM securitizations now account for approximately $1.6 billion in total securitized residential loans. All seven securitizations have been largely backed by mortgages originated through Angel Oak’s affiliated lenders. Back in March, Angel Oak closed AOMT 2018-PB1
, a $90 million securitization backed by loans originated by Angel Oak Prime Bridge. AOMT 2018-2 marks Angel Oak’s seventh mortgage securitization since 2015
, bringing the total to more than $1.4 billion-plus.
“Our vertically integrated model allows us to securitize loans originated by our affiliated lending businesses that meet our investment parameters,” said Sreeni Prabhu, Angel Oak Co-Chief Executive Officer and Chief Information Officer. “The success of our affiliated lending companies is proof that our model works. Investors have confidence in both the transparency provided by our origination and in our underwriting capabilities.”
The deal was comprised of 1,096 loans with an average weighted credit score of 704 and an average loan amount of $366,797. The majority of the loans included in the securitization were issued in California, Florida and Georgia.
“Our securitizations have established a strong investor base following our program’s frequent issuance, execution and consistent quality,” said Lauren Hedvat, Angel Oak’s Managing Director of Capital Markets. “Angel Oak’s leadership in both non-QM securitizations and originations continues to be recognized throughout the industry.”
