President and Chief Investment Officer, stated, "The second quarter was
characterized by extreme volatility in both interest rates and mortgage
spreads. We reduced the size of our asset portfolio, adjusted our asset
composition to be more consistent with a higher rate environment, and
materially increased the duration of our hedges. As a result of these actions
and evolving market conditions, our exposure to higher rates is lower than it
has been in years and our 'pay-up' risk is now minimal." The Full Research
