Anworth Mortgage Asset Corporation operates as a real estate investment trust (REIT) in the United States. The company’s principal business is to invest in, finance and manage a leveraged portfolio of residential mortgage-backed securities (MBS), which are primarily agency MBS (Agency MBS). Agency MBS include residential mortgage pass-through certificates and collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs), which are securities representing interests in pools of mortgage loans secured by residential property in which the principal and interest payments are guaranteed by a government-sponsored enterprise (GSE), such as the Federal National Mortgage Association or the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation. The company also owns non-agency MBS (Non-Agency MBS), which are securities issued by companies that are not guaranteed by federally sponsored enterprises and that are secured primarily by first-lien residential mortgage loans. Investment Portfolio Agency MBS Residential Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates: The company principally invests in pass-through certificates, which are securities representing interests in ‘pools’ of mortgage loans secured by residential real property in which payments of both interest and principal on the securities are generally made monthly to holders of the security, in effect ‘passing through’ monthly payments made by the individual borrowers on the mortgage loans that underlie the securities, net of fees paid to the issuer/guarantor and servicers of the securities. CMOs: CMOs are securities that are structured instruments representing interests in agency residential pass-through certificates. CMOs consist of multiple classes of securities, with each class having specified characteristics, including stated maturity dates, weighted average lives and rules governing principal and interest distribution. Non-Agency Mortgage Investments Non-Agency MBS are securities backed by residential mortgages for which the payment of principal and interest is not guaranteed by a GSE or government agency. Non-Agency MBS are often referred to as ‘private label MBS’. Non-Agency MBS are backed by residential mortgages that could be consisted of prime mortgage or non-prime mortgage loans, which are as follows: Prime Mortgage Loans: Prime mortgage loans are residential mortgage loans that generally conform to the underwriting guidelines of a U.S. Government agency or a GSE but that do not carry any credit guarantee from either a U.S. Government agency or a GSE. Jumbo prime mortgage loans are prime mortgage loans that conform to such underwriting guidelines except as to loan size. Non-prime Mortgage Loans: Non-prime mortgage loans are residential mortgage loans that do not meet all of the underwriting guidelines of a U.S. Government agency or a GSE. Consequently, these loans might carry higher credit risk than prime mortgage loans. Non-prime mortgage loans might allow borrowers to qualify for a mortgage loan with reduced or alternative forms of documentation. This category includes loans commonly referred to as alternative A- paper (Alt-A) or as subprime. Alt-A mortgage loans are considered riskier than prime mortgage loans but less risky than subprime mortgage loans. Subprime mortgage loans are considered to be of the lowest credit quality. These loans might also include option-adjustable-rate mortgage loans. Other Mortgage-Related Investments Mortgage Derivative Securities: The company might acquire mortgage derivative securities in an amount not to exceed 10% of its total assets. Mortgage derivative securities provide for the holder to receive interest-only, principal-only or interest and principal in amounts that are disproportionate to those payable on the underlying mortgage loans. The company might invest in inverse floaters, a class of CMOs with a coupon rate that resets in the opposite direction from the market rate of interest to which it is indexed, including LIBOR or the 11th District Cost of Funds Index. The company might invest in other mortgage derivative securities that might be developed in the future. Mortgage Warehouse Participations: The company might occasionall
