Redwood Trust, Inc., a real estate investment trust (REIT), focuses on engaging in residential and commercial mortgage banking activities and investing in mortgage- and other real estate-related assets. Segments The company operates its business in three segments: Residential Mortgage Banking, Residential Investments, and Commercial Mortgage Banking and Investment. Residential Mortgage Banking This segment primarily consists of operating a mortgage loan conduit that acquires residential whole loans from third-party originators for subsequent sale, securitization, or transfer to the company’s investment portfolio, Jumbo loans it acquires are typically sold through its Sequoia securitization program or to institutions that acquire pools of whole loans. Conforming loans the company acquires are generally sold to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Agencies). The company’s residential loan acquisitions are usually made on a flow basis, after origination by banks or mortgage companies, and are periodically augmented by bulk acquisitions. This segment also includes various derivative financial instruments and interest only securities retained from the company’s Sequoia securitizations that it utilizes to manage certain risks associated with residential loans it acquires. The company’s Residential Mortgage Banking segment’s main source of revenue is mortgage banking income, which includes valuation increases (or gains) on the loans it acquires for sale or securitization, as well as valuation changes in associated derivatives and interest only securities that are used in part to manage risks associated with its mortgage banking activities. Residential Investments This segment includes a portfolio of investments in residential mortgage-backed securities retained from the company’s Sequoia securitizations, as well as residential mortgage-backed securities issued by third parties. This segment also includes residential loans held for investment as well as mortgage servicing rights (MSRs) associated with residential loans securitized through its Sequoia program or purchased from third parties. The residential investment segment’s main sources of revenue are interest income from investment portfolio securities and residential loans held-for-investment, as well as the realized gains recognized upon sales of these securities and income from MSRs. This segment also includes derivative financial instruments that the company utilizes to manage certain risks associated with its residential investment portfolio. Commercial Mortgage Banking and Investment This segment consists of its commercial mortgage banking operations, as well as its portfolio of held-for-investment commercial real estate loans. The company operates as a commercial real estate lender by originating mortgage loans and providing other forms of commercial real estate financing. This include senior or subordinate mortgage loans, mezzanine loans, and other forms of financing, such as preferred equity interests in special purpose entities that own commercial real estate. The company sells the senior loans the company originates to third parties for securitization and the mezzanine and subordinate loans the company originates are held for investment. This segment also includes derivative financial instruments the company utilizes to manage certain risks associated with its commercial loan origination activity.
