Macquarie?s first 2008 no- and low-doc RMBS rated AAA

Staff Reporter 1 minute read

The class A notes of Macquarie’s first no- and low-doc RMBS issue for the year was today assigned a ‘AAA’ preliminary rating by Standard & Poor’s.

The $300 million issue, called PUMA Masterfund S-6 bond issue, included $270 million Class A senior notes and $30 million Class B subordinated notes.

Class A notes were priced at 180 basis points over the one month bank bill swap rate. Class B notes were unrated.

The pool of loans had a weighted average LVR of 57 per cent and consisted entirely of loans made to prime self-employed borrowers.

Peter Maher, Macquarie group head of banking and financial services, said the issue received strong support from investors who “saw the transaction as good value presented by disruptions in global financial markets”.

Standard & Poor’s credit analyst Jackson Chan was pleased with the transaction and said the credit support provided by the notes’ subordination significantly exceeded the support required by the rating agency.
