Fitch was provided with Form ABS Due Diligence-15E (Form 15E) as prepared by Consolidated Analytics. The third-party due diligence described in Form 15E focused on a credit, compliance and property valuation review. Fitch considered this information in its analysis and, as a result, Fitch made the following adjustment(s) to its analysis: a 5% default reduction at the loan level. This adjustment resulted in a 20bps reduction to the ‘AAAsf’ expected loss.


Fitch relied in its analysis on an independent third-party due diligence review performed on 100% of the pool. The third-party due diligence was consistent with Fitch’s “U.S. RMBS Rating Criteria.” Consolidated Analytics was engaged to perform the review. Loans reviewed under this engagement were given compliance, credit and valuation grades and assigned initial grades for each subcategory. Minimal exceptions and waivers were noted in the due diligence reports. Refer to the Third-Party Due Diligence section of this report for further details.
