KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to CIM Trust 2019-INV3

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns preliminary ratings to 31 classes of mortgage pass-through certificates from CIM Trust 2019-INV3, a prime RMBS transaction, the third from Chimera Investment Corporation and backed almost exclusively by agency-eligible investment-purpose mortgage loans.

The CIM Trust 2019-INV3 mortgage pool is composed of 1,405 first-lien mortgage loans with an aggregate principal balance of $353,199,021 as of the cut-off date. The underlying collateral consists entirely of fully amortizing, fixed-rate mortgages. The pool is characterized by substantial borrower equity in each mortgaged property, as evidenced by the WA original LTV of 68.3% and WA original CLTV of 68.3%. The weighted average original credit score is 769, which is within the prime mortgage range.

KBRA’s rating approach incorporated loan-level analysis of the mortgage pool through its Residential Mortgage Default and Loss Model, an examination of the results from third-party loan file due diligence, cash flow modeling analysis of the transaction’s payment structure, reviews of key transaction parties and an assessment of the transaction’s legal structure and documentation. This analysis is further described in our U.S. RMBS Rating Methodology.
