In addition, Bob supports the sales team by assisting in all transactions including data preparation & scrubbing, setting pricing expectations for sellers, working with buyers to maximize pricing for sellers and follow-up for all post-sale activity such as prepay protection, interim servicing functions, document holdback and reconciliation. In support of strategic hedging advisory, Bob provides sensitivity analyses to clients and their third-party hedge firms. He also led the development of our stratification software utilized for managing the data for valuations. Currently, this software can handle portfolios ranging in size from just a few hundred to well over 6 million loans.
