  Deutsche Bank and Bloomberg Collaborate to Launch Mortgage OAS Model

Business Wire

NEW YORK -- October 7, 2013

Deutsche Bank announced today its collaboration with Bloomberg on a new option
adjusted spread (OAS) model. The OAS model combined with Deutsche Bank's
Prepayment Model seeks to provide market participants a standard, accurate way
to value agency mortgage backed securities (MBS) and collateralized mortgage
obligations (CMOs) in today's low interest rate environment.

Available to more than 315,000 Bloomberg Professional service subscribers, the
Bloomberg OAS model enables users to generate future interest rate paths using
methods that significantly reduce the risk of negative rates. Using advanced
mathematical techniques, it allows users to preserve a wide range of possible
outcomes while using only 256 interest rate paths, providing real-time results
in seconds.

“Deutsche Bank is pleased to have helped Bloomberg’s technical design and
implementation group develop this innovative model through close
collaboration,” said Steven Abrahams, Head of MBS and Securitization Research
at Deutsche Bank.

The resulting interest rate paths are input into the Deutsche Bank Prepayment
Model – already available via Bloomberg – through which analysts, portfolio
managers and traders are able to better analyze bond value and risk. Together,
the two models produce OAS valuations for agency MBS and CMO securities.

“Our new OAS model combined with Deutsche Bank's Prepayment Model provides
subscribers a robust framework to value their mortgage investments," said
Russel Parentela, Bloomberg's Head of Structured Products. "Bloomberg is
committed to working with industry participants like Deutsche Bank to provide
even more value to our clients."

Bloomberg Professional services subscribers can access the Deutsche Bank
Prepayment Model and the OAS model through several Bloomberg analytics, such
as, OAS1<GO>, YT NEW<GO>, and CFT<GO>.
